Critical Point Research Leads to Publications

Don Jacobs, professor of physics at The College of Wooster and principal investigator on a NASA Fundamental Physics grant, recently published two journal articles in The Journal of Chemical Physics.

One resulted from a collaboration with Prof. Sandra Greer and her students at the University of Maryland at College Park:
Krishna Pendyala, S.C. Greer, and D.T. Jacobs, "Poly(a-methylstyrene) in methylcyclohexane: densities and viscosities near the liquid-liquid critical point" J. Chem. Phys. 115, 9995-10000 (2001).

The other was from collaborations with an undergraduate student and a faculty colleague at The College of Wooster:
Christine Rauch, Shila Garg, and D.T. Jacobs, "Phase transitions in a nematic binary mixture" J. Chem. Phys. 116, 2213-2218 (2002).
