Svante August 1859–1927
Swedish physicist and chemist who developed the theory of electrolytic dissociation, which explained the process by which ions are formed or separated. For this work he was awarded the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1903. He also investigated osmosis, toxins, and antitoxins.
Such solutions were called by Arrhenius " isohydric."
SVANTE AUGUST ARRHENIUS (1859-), Swedish physicist and chemist, was born on the 19th of February 1859, at Schloss Wijk, near Upsala.
In 1887 Svante Arrhenius, professor of physics at Stockholm, put forward a new theory which supposed that the freedom of the opposite ions from each other was not a mere momentary freedom at the instants of molecular collision, but a more or less permanent freedom, the ions moving independently of each other through the liquid.
Arrhenius pointed out that these exceptions would be brought into line if the ions of electrolytes were imagined to be separate entities each capable of producing its own pressure effects just as would an ordinary dissolved molecule.
