Augustin-Pierre Dubrunfaut (born in 1797 in Lille - died in 1881[1]) was a French chemist.

Mutarotation was discovered by Dubrunfaut in 1846, when he noticed that the specific rotation of aqueous sugar solution changes with time.[2][3][4] The organic fructose molecule was first discovered by Dubrunfaut in 1847.[5]
