Carl Johann Philipp Noé Richard Anschütz (March 10, 1852 – January 8, 1937) was a German chemist.

He received his PhD at the University of Bonn for his work with August Kekulé. He became Kekulé's assistant and, later, his successor as professor at the University of Bonn. His biography of Kekulé opened a view on the claims of Archibald Scott Couper as an independent co-discoverer of the ability of carbon atoms to link to each other to form chains (the theory of chemical structure).
