Tiselius, Arne

Arne Tiselius (är´nə tēsā´lyəs), 1902–71, Swedish biochemist. He received the 1948 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for developing new methods of separating and detecting colloids. One system (electro-phoresis) employs an electrical apparatus (Tiselius apparatus) for the separation of heavy molecules in solution; the other is a method of adsorption analysis that permits the differentiation and separation of substances, e.g., proteins, sugars, salts, and acids. Tiselius isolated the virus of mouse paralysis and developed synthetic blood plasma. In 1925 he joined the faculty of the Univ. of Uppsala; he did research at the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton in 1934–35 and at the Rockefeller Institute, New York City, in 1939.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
