About this Item

FIRST EDITION. Frontisportrait, lvi, 660 pp; 3 plates; text figs. Original cloth. Very Good. For Graham, see D.S.B. V: 492-495. 'Thomas Graham is best known for two things: His studies on the diffusion of gases resulted in 'Graham's Law', which states that the rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of its molar mass. His discovery of dialysis, which is used in many medical facilities today, was the result of Graham's study of colloids. This work resulted in Graham's ability to separate colloids and crystalloids using a so-called 'dialyzer', the precursor of today's dialysis machine. This study initiated the scientific field known as colloid chemistry, of which Graham is credited as the founder' (Wikipedia). Bookseller Inventory # 22112
