  Chemistry of Life: Faces—The Human Dimension
Swedish biochemist The Svedberg was awarded the Nobel Prize at the relatively young age of 42 for his observation of Brownian motion, which proved the existence of molecules.
Svedberg used the ultracentrifuge to measure the molecular weights of large molecules, such as proteins and other biopolymers, showing some to have molecular weights in the millions.
Svedberg spent most of his career at the University of Uppsala, and later in his career he turned his attention to nuclear chemistry.

 Svedberg, Theodor H.E.,
Svedberg's early research was on colloids, in which particles too small to be resolved by ordinary light microscopes are dispersed throughout water or some other substance.
Svedberg found that the size and weight of the particles determined their rate of settling out, or sedimentation, and he used this fact to measure their size.
With an ultracentrifuge, Svedberg went on to determine precisely the molecular weights of highly complex proteins such as hemoglobin.

 CHEM-342, Bkgd Svedberg & Fahraeus article
Theodor Svedberg who was interested in the properties of colloidal suspensions, designed and built an ultracentrifuge that could generate forces over 100,000 times gravity (9).
In this article Svedberg and Fåhraeus describe the technique of equilibrium ultracentrifugation in which the rate of sedimentation is exactly compensated by diffusion in the reverse direction.
On Saturday October 16, 1937, Svedberg was the distinguished featured speaker at the dedication of Brown Laboratory at the University of Delaware (15).

 The Svedberg - Biography
Theodor (The) Svedberg was born at Fleräng, Valbo, in the county of Gävleborg, Sweden on August 30, 1884, as the son of Elias Svedberg, a works manager, and his wife, Augusta, née Alstermark.
Svedberg accepted a post as assistant in the Chemical Institute at Uppsala in 1905 and in 1907 he was given the additional position of lecturer in chemistry in the university.
Svedberg has contributed a large number of scientific papers to Swedish and foreign journals on colloid and high-molecular solutions, nuclear chemistry and radiation biology.

 Svedberg, Theodor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Svedberg was born near Gävle, studied at Uppsala and spent his career there, as professor 1912-49 and head of the Institute of Nuclear Chemistry 1949-67.
Svedberg discovered that thorium-X crystallizes with lead and barium salts (but not with others), anticipating English chemist Frederick Soddy's demonstration of the existence of isotopes.
Svedberg also investigated, about 1923, the chemistry involved in the formation of latent images in photographic emulsions.

 Sedimentation
Very quickly Svedberg found that he needed a very fast centrifuge, one that ran so fast that its rotor heated up in the air in which it was revolving.
Svedberg also used this process to assess the homogeneity of his particles.
Later, Svedberg determined an equation that related the displacement between the two major swings of the line to the molecular weight of the particle that was sedimenting.

 Svedberg, Theodor H.E.
Svedberg studied at the University of Uppsala and obtained his doctorate in 1907 becoming professor in 1912.
With the exception of research periods in Göttingen and Wisconsin, Svedberg remained loyal to his Alma Mater, heading the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the University of Uppsala until retirement in 1949.
Svedberg was chiefly interested in the chemistry of colloids and in 1923 developed the ultracentrifuge to settle the tiny colloid particles according to their molecular weights.

 The School Museum, Nykarleby
Svedberg's school was a pioneering project of the Finnish education system.
Anders Svedberg was both a teacher and a journalist.
Before the teachers' college in Nykarleby was established in 1873, students from many places came to Svedberg's school in order to be able to work as teachers in village schools.

 SVEDBERG Home Page
For multi-species fits SVEDBERG also allows the user to constrain the properties of the species with respect to one another, forcing the constrained species to have hydrodynamic properties which are in ratios appropriate for small oligomers.
SVEDBERG also helps you to document and reproduce your analyses by printing complete reports listing exactly what data were fitted and all parameters which affect the results, and by saving all data and parameters in a single binary data file so you can instantly reload an entire analysis.
Thus overall SVEDBERG is generally faster and easier to use, and can successfully converge on multi-species fits in situations where SEDFIT fails to converge on a solution.

The(odor) Svedberg (1884-1971) professor in physical chemistry at Uppsala University from 1912 to 1949, was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1926 for his research on dispersed systems (colloidal solutions).
Intensive discussions concerning the type and size of accelerators Swedish research in nuclear and high-energy physics should have at its disposal took place in early 1980's, One result of this process was that a decision was taken to bring the magnets of the so-called ICE-ring (Initial Cooling Experiment) from CERN to Uppsala.
Since 1994 The Svedberg Laboratory is a national research facility funded to a large fraction from the Swedish Natural Science Research Council.

For his contributions to colloid chemistry he was awarded the 1926 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
Svedberg was born in Flerng, near Gvle, on 30 August 1884.
As a secondary-school student he became interested in natural sciences (particularly botany), and resolved to study chemistry in the belief that many of the unsolved problems in biology could be explained as chemical phenomena.
