Victor Henri (6 June 1872 – 21 June 1940) was a French physical chemist. He published over 500 papers in a variety of disciplines including biochemistry, physical chemistry, psychology and physiology.
In 1903, Henri found that enzyme reactions were initiated by a bond between the enzyme and the substrate. In 1910, his work was taken up by German biochemist Leonor Michaelis and Canadian physician Maud Menten. Their investigation of the saccharase enzyme eventually lead to the famous Michaelis-Menten kinetics that sometimes bears Henri's name.
