Biography

Born in Warsaw, Poland, in 1887, Fajans was educated in Germany and received a Ph. D from the University of Heidelberg in 1909. He did postdoctoral studies with Richard Willstater at Zurich University and with Ernest Rutherford in Manchester, England. In 1911 he joined the staff of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. From 1917 to 1935 he was a professor at the University of Munich, serving as the Director of the Institute of Physical Chemistry from 1932 to 1935. He was also director of the Institute for Physico-Chemical Measurements.

Before coming to the University of Michigan in 1936, Fajans had established an international reputation for his scientific achievements in many fields of both chemistry and physics. He was already an authority on many phases of radioactivity, refractivity, adsorption, molecular structure, crystal structure, photochemistry, and thermochemistry. In the early days of his studies in radioactivity, while working at Manchester, Karlsruhe, and Munich, Fajans was one of the first to develop the idea of matter as composed of isotopes of the several elements, and to make clear the nature of the transformation in the natural radioactive series. Fajans' studies on radioactivity established the radioactive displacement laws (Fajans-Soddy Displacement Laws) and helped place radio elements in the periodic system. The Fajans-Paneth-Hahn rule resulted from his work on the precipitation and absorption of radio elements and dye-ions. With Oswald Göhring, he discovered the Uranium x2 form of protactinium-234. His quanticule theory of chemical binding was the focus of his later work. Fajans retired from the university in 1957. He died in 1975.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The papers of Kasimir Fajans, professor of chemistry at the University of Michigan from 1936 to 1957, cover his career as a physical chemist dating from 1912 to 1975.

Correspondence [series]

Correspondence is the largest series in the collection and consists of two subseries, files arranged alphabetically and files arranged by subject or other grouping. As a gifted teacher and supportive colleague, Fajans corresponded with friends, students, and fellow scientists. His correspondents include numerous Nobel laureates, e.g. Otto Hahn, George Hevesy, Ernest Rutherford, Glenn Seaborg, and Richard Willstatter. The correspondence is substantial, with discussions of scientific theories, and the exchanging of interpretations and experimental results. The correspondence is arranged alphabetically by correspondent and is strongest for the period since his immigration to the United States. Perhaps one-third of the correspondence is in German.

Publications [series]

The Publications series includes both published and unpublished materials. The first subseries, which relates to the publishing of his books and articles, includes correspondence with editors and referees. These exchanges are revealing not only of the intellectual and experimental aspects of the research, but also of the sociology of scientific investigation and publishing. The correspondence with scientists and publishers is particularly strong on Fajans' quanticule theory of chemical binding, which he considered equal in importance with his work on radioactivity. Other portions of this series consist of reprints of Fajans and others, books authored by Fajans, and a set of the German doctoral dissertations prepared under Fajans' tutelage.
