Cato Maximilian Guldberg (August 11 1836 in Christiania (today Oslo) – January 14 1902, Oslo) was a Norwegian mathematician and chemist.

Law of mass action

Guldberg worked at the University of Oslo. Together with his brother-in-law, Peter Waage, he proposed the law of mass action. This law attracted little attention until, in 1877, Jacobus Henricus van 't Hoff arrived at a similar relationship and experimentally demonstrated its validity.

Guldberg rule

In 1890, he published what is now known as the Guldberg rule, which states that the normal boiling point of a liquid is two-thirds of the critical temperature when measured on the absolute scale.
