The Dutch physical chemist Jacobus Hendricus van''t Hoff, generally regarded as the father of chemical kinetics, initiated the foundation of stereochemistry in 1874 with his work on optically active carbon compounds and three-dimensional and asymmetrical molecular structures. Three years later, he related thermodynamics to chemical reactions and developed a method for establishing the order of reactions. In 1889 the Swedish chemist Svante August Arrhenius investigated the speeding of chemical reactions with increase in temperature and enunciated the theory of electrolytic dissociation, known as Arrhenius''s theory.
