    Svante Arrhenius devised the early theory that an acid is anything which increases H3O+ concentration when added to water.

    Johannes Nicolaus Brønsted and Martin Lowry came up with the theory that acids are species which donate protons to other species. (look up Brønsted-Lowry theory of acids)

    Gilbert N Lewis's definition of acid states that an acid is any species which can accept a pair of electrons from another species. (look up lewis acid)

    Lawrence Joseph Henderson and Karl Albert Hasselbalch devised the equation for calculating the pH of a solution. (look up henderson-hasselbalch equation)
