Veniamin Grigorievich (Benjamin) Levich (March 30, 1917, Kharkiv, Ukraine — January 19, 1987, Englewood, New Jersey, USA) was an internationally prominent physical chemist and founder of the discipline of physico-chemical hydrodynamics. He was a student of the theoretical physicist, Lev Landau. His landmark textbook titled Physicochemical Hydrodynamics is widely considered his most important contribution to science. The Levich Equation describing a current at a rotating disk electrode is named after him. His research activities also included gas-phase collision reactions, electrochemistry, and the quantum mechanics of electron transfer.
