ABSTRACT
Zsigmondy, Richard (1865-1929) was an Austrian chemist who did important research in colloidal chemistry. A colloid is a material composed of tiny particles of one substance that are dispersed (distributed) but not dissolved in another substance. In 1925, Zsigmondy was presented the Nobel Prize in chemistry for his work. Richard Adolf Zsigmondy was born on April 1, 1865, in Vienna, Austria. He was the son of Adolf Zsigmondy, a dentist, and Irma (von Szakm�ry) Zsigmondy. He studied chemistry at the Vienna University of Technology, and then received a doctorate in organic chemistry in 1890 at the University of Munich. He spent several years teaching, and also researched colors for glass, which led him to study the chemistry of colloids. In 1897, Zsigmondy became an industrial chemist for the Schott Glass Manufacturing Company in Jena, Germany. There he invented the well-known �Jena milk glass.�
