About this Item

Graham, Thomas (1805-69). On the absorption and dialytic separation of gases by colloidal septa. In PhilosophicalTransactions 156, pt. 2 (1866): 399-439. Whole number, 4to. v, [3], 399-886, 25pp. 22 plates (numbered XXII-XLIII). London: Taylor & Francis. 299 x 232 mm., largely unopened. Original wrappers, very slightly worn. Fine copy. First Edition of one of the foundation papers of colloid chemistry, written by the originator of "Graham's Law" of gaseous diffusion (1833). "Based on his work on osmosis, Graham developed what he called a 'dialyzer,' which he used to separate colloids, which dialyzed slowly, from crystalloids, which dialyzed rapidly. He prepared colloids of silicic acid, alumina, ferric oxide, and other hydrous metal oxides, and he distinguished between sols and gels. Much of the terminology and fundamental concepts of this field are due to Graham" (DSB). Also contained in this number of the Phil. Trans. is another paper of chemical interest, Benjamin C. Brodie, Jr.'s "The calculus of chemical operations," which attempted to replace Dalton's atomic theory with one based solely on weight. The remaining papers in this number are Edward Sabine's "Results of the magnetic observations at Kew" and "Contributions to terrestrial magnetism"; H. Charlton Bastian's "On the anatomy and physiology of the nematoids"; Samuel Haughton's "Tides of the Arctic seas, part III"; C. W. Siemens's "On uniform rotation"; William B. Carpenter's "Researches on the structure, physiology and development of Antedon (Comatula, Lank.) rosaceus, part I"; J. J. Sylvester's "On the motion of a rigid body acted on by no external forces"; and Augustus Matthiessen's "On the expansion by heat of metal alloys.". Bookseller Inventory # 38826
