SANTOS, Nadja Paraense dos. "Laboratório químico-prático do Rio de Janeiro": the first attempt at establishing the science of Chemistry in Brazil (1812- 1819). Quím. Nova [online]. 2004, vol.27, n.2, pp.342-348. ISSN 0100-4042.

Until the present date, historians of science have described inaccurately the first laboratory created in Brazil for establishing and divulging Chemistry, namely the "Laboratório Químico-Prático do Rio de Janeiro". During recent research carried out in the Arquivo do Museu Imperial (Petrópolis, RJ), I localized a document entitled "Ensaio histórico analítico das operações do Laboratório Químico-Prático do Rio de Janeiro", which allowed me to gain the relevant information to correct some of the observations made in the first chronicles.

Keywords : history of the sciences; Laboratório Químico-Prático do Rio de Janeiro; history of Chemistry in Brazil.
