Szyszkowski, Bogdan


Born June 20,1873, in Tribukhi, in what is now the Ukrainian SSR; died Aug. 13, 1931, in Myślenice. Polish physical chemist. Member of the Polish Academy of Sciences (1929).

Szyszkowski graduated from the University of Kiev in 1896 and joined the staff of the university in 1907. In 1920 he became a professor at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. Szyszkowski’s principal works deal with colloidal chemistry and the theory of solutions. In 1908 he experimentally established the connection between surface tension and the concentration of aqueous surfactants. This relationship is expressed by the Szyszkowski equation.
