Issue Spotlight

The September, 2015 issue is the third Founders Tribute, which honors Professor John M. Prausnitz, an exceptional scholar, educator, and intellectual leader in Chemical Engineering. Currently Professor of the Graduate School at the University of California, Berkeley, he is internationally renowned for developing the discipline of molecular thermodynamics. His connection of fundamental molecular theory to practical thermodynamic applications was integral to the profession’s Twentieth Century paradigm shift from empiricism to engineering science. In addition to transforming core engineering knowledge and practice, John's writings and lectures extend to a holistic view of technology in society and science as a human enterprise. The lead contribution of the issue is a retrospective on Professor Prausnitz’ legacy, and was authored by one of the Professor’s former students, John O’Connell, Professor Emeritus from the University of Virginia’s Chemical Engineering Department. The remainder of the issue contains works from Prausnitz’ colleagues, academic offspring, collaborators, representing a myriad of institutions and scholars from around the world. One of the contributors is his son, Professor Mark Prausnitz from Georgia Tech University.
