Summary

In this, the second part of our review we continue the discussion of the activities of M. S. Tswett related to the development of chromatography. We shall deal here with his activities in Warsaw from 1903 onwards, resulting in his fundamental twin papers of 1906 and his book of 1910, summarizing all his activities related to the investigation of plant pigments and to the development of chromatography. Finally, a few special questions related to Tswett's work shall be discussed.
