In 1861, Graham found that not all substances acted in the same way when their solutions were separated from water by a parchment membrane. Crystalline substances like sodium chlorid, potassium iodid, sugar and the like passed through, while substances like gums, starches and proteins did not. Those that passed through he called crystalloids, those that did not, colloids.
