Scientific achievements of Smoluchowski in the domain of electrokinetics and related fields are discussed in a historical context. Themes include theory and experiments in electro-osmosis, streaming currents and potentials, electrophoresis, surface conduction, the interpretation of electrokinetic potentials and double layer formation. We discuss the state of the art when Smoluchowski was active and make a comparison with present day insights.
