Julius Bredt (March 29, 1855 – September 21, 1937) was a German organic chemist. He was the first to determine, in 1893, the correct structure of camphor. Bredt also discovered that a double bond cannot be placed at the bridgehead of a bridged ring system, a statement now known as Bredt's rule.
There is a Julius Bredt lecture in his remembrance at the RWTH Aachen University.
