S. Jacobi’s bicentennial birthday anniversary) The scientific interests of Academician Jacobi were primarily with physics and investigations of electro- magnetic phenomena and their practical applications. At the same time, he made an outstanding contribu- tion to the development of applied electrochemistry, studied and improved chemical power sources; he also discovered galvanoplastics and promoted its wide acceptance. Boris Semenovich Jacobi (Moritz Herman von Jaco- bi before acquiring Russian citizenship) was born on September 9 (21), 1801, in Potsdam (Germany) into a highly educated merchants’ family.
