Sophus Mads Jørgensen
A DANISH PLATINUM METALS PIONEER
- George B. Kauffman
It is as Alfred Werner's primary scientific adversary and the chemist whose work on co-ordination compounds provided the experimental basis for Werner's revolutionary co-ordination theory that Jørgensen is usually remembered. Yet in his work on what were then called “molecular compounds” he made valuable contributions to our basic knowledge of rhodium and platinum complexes.
