First treatise on Magneto chemistry in India was written in English by Dr. S.S. Bhatnagar and Dr. K.N. Mathur, in the year 1935. This dealt with the physical principles and the application of Magneto chemistry. In this particular subject, they studied mainly on oxidation.
This particular book on Magneto chemistry provides an excellent summary of the work on Magneto chemistry. The notable contributions of Dr. S.S. Bhatnagar, M. Sc. (Punjab
), D. Sc. (London) in the field of Magneto chemistry are also discussed here. For this work on Magneto chemistry, he won an award of rupees one lakh which he later donated to a University. This work earned him the title 'knight' in 1941 and was awarded 'Padma Vibhushana
' in 1954. He expired on the 1st January, 1955. Thereafter, many further experiments in Isomagnetics and other aspects of Magnetotherapy or Magnetic Therapy
are going on in India.
This book on Magneto chemistry inspired the modern time people to use this ancient knowledge about the therapeutic quality of the magnet. Thus, the magnet treatment has been revived during the last 200 years and is being developed now with the hope of increasing the utility of magnet as a healer of human sufferings.
