MAGALHAES, Francisco de Oliveira; CAMARA, Cláudio Augusto Gomes da  and  ALMEIDA, Argus Vasconcelos de. O ensino da química na Escola Superior de Agricultura "São Bento", Olinda - São Lourenço da Mata - Pernambuco (1912-1936). Quím. Nova [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.3, pp.709-719. ISSN 1678-7064.

The present work proposes the investigation of the role of chemistry in the curriculum of the Higher School of Agriculture "São Bento" (1912-1936) and its function in the education of agronomic engineers. The circumstances under which the Higher Schools of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine in Olinda were founded at the beginning of the XXth century are discussed. The article further treats the influence of the principles of Justus von Liebig, which were seen at that time as essential for a rational agriculture.

Keywords : history of chemistry; Pernambuco; Escola Superior de Agricultura "São Bento".
