Experimentally confirmed (1906) the theory of Brownian motion developed by A. Einstein and M. Smoluchowski. He created an ultracentrifugation method for separating colloidal particles from a solution, built the first ultracentrifuges. He made a great contribution to the development of the physicochemistry of proteins.<br><br>The unit used in sedimentation analysis for measuring the ratio of the rate of sedimentation to centrifugal acceleration, swedberg, is named after him. 1 swedberg = 10-13 sec.
