Bhupendra Nath Ghosh, Indian chemist (Arambag Village,
Hooghly District, West Bengal April 1900 – Calcutta 26 May 1988)
Isolated a cardiotoxin and a respiratory toxin from snakes venom as well as enzymatic inhibitors Verified experimentally the effect of surface conductance in modifying the zeta potential of the particles Proposed an original equation for the rate of colloids coagulation Developed equations for the variation of activity,
conductance, viscosity and molal volume in terms of cube-root of
concentration
Deriving equation to account for the effect of added electrolytes on the viscosity of sols Modification of the equations for the electroviscous effect of colloidal electrolytes Equation to account quantitatively for the variation
of apparent molal volume of strong electrolytes in solution according to cube
root of concentration

Soc. 66:71-2, 1989 His brother, Jnanendra Chandra Ghosh, Indian chemist (Purulia,
East Bengali 14 September 1894 – Calcutta 21 January 1959) Created the theory of complete
dissociation of electrolytes (1918), that was improved and revised by Debye in 1923 Eponym of Ghosh equation for the conductance of binary electrolytes and Langmuir-Ghosh equation for colloids |
