P.S. is indebted to the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Bonn) for financial support in terms of a Humboldt Research Award. Our work on mercury melting started exactly 20 years ago because of Prof. Friedrich Hensel (Marburg), who brought to our attention the many fascinating anomalies in the physical properties of solid and liquid mercury. M.W. also acknowledges funding by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (Bonn) in terms of a Feodor-Lynen fellowship. P.S. acknowledges early funding of this research project through a Marsden grant (UOA911) administered by the Royal Society of New Zealand.
