Emil Maximilian Dingler (born March 10, 1806 in Augsburg ; † October 9, 1874 there ) was a German chemist and manufacturer, as well as editor of the Polytechnic Journal (from 1855 Dinglers Polytechnisches Journal ), the first technical journal in Germany.


He was the son of Johann Gottfried Dingler (1778–1855), the founder of the journal. Emil Dingler graduated from high school in Augsburg and began studying physics and chemistry as early as the fall of 1822. He studied first in Landshut, then in Erfurt, Berlin and Göttingen until 1826. In 1829 he obtained his doctorate in Erlangen. Then he went on a study trip through France, Belgium, England, Scotland, the Netherlands and Germany, which were the technically leading nations at the time. In 1831 he began working in the journal, from 1840 (issue 78) until issue 214, which he edited shortly before his death in 1874, he was solely responsible.

In 1839 he revised the layout of the dye works and fabric printing by Jean-Baptiste Vitalis and published a completely revised 2nd edition.
