HISTORY OF CHEMISTRY AND CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY Theodor Grotthuss (to 220th Anniversary of His Birthday) Theodor Grotthuss, a talented scientist, physicist, and chemist from the Baltic region, went down in history as the author of an original theory of electroly- sis of aqueous solutions and of studies in the field of photochemistry and analytical chemistry. The theo- retical ideas presented in his works largely fore- shadowed the physical theory of solutions, concepts of electrolytic dissociation, and understanding of the phenomenon of luminescence and chemical action of light. Grotthuss made first observations in the field of electrochemistry of organic compounds. A major con- tribution to the study of the scientific legacy of Grotthuss and his life was made by J.P.
