The keynote speaker at the same Bruges conference was Arne Tiselius, who had won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1948 for his discovery of moving-boundary electrophoresis. In his talk, "Electrophoresis, Past, Present and Future", the Nobel laureate cited Kohn's work with CA membranes (15).
Moving-boundary electrophoresis, introduced by Tiselius in 1937, paved the way for electrophoresis on stabilized media, zone electrophoresis, and paper and cellulose acetate electrophoresis-powerful tools for the separation and identification of proteins.
