The first of these papers is by Alexander-Edmond Becquerel, and is concerned with the radiations emitted by uranium. The other six papers report the electro-chemical researches of Edmond's father, Antoine-Cesar Becquerel, with two of the articles written in collaboration by father and son. Both father and son held the chair of physics at the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle. Antoine-Cesar Becquerel did his researches primarily in the field of electrochemistry, establishing that all chemical reactions can generate electricity, and synthesizing mineral substances. His son, Alexandre Edmond, did his most significant work on the phenomena of luminescence, providing the germ for the researches of his son, Henri Bequerel and the subsequent discovery of radiation.
