ON SOLUBILITY AND EQUILIBRIUM DATA
The Franzosini Award is given to a promising young contributor
to the Solubility Data Project (SDP) to help them attend, in even
years, the International Symposium on Solubility Phenomena (ISSP)
and, in odd years, the annual meetings of the Subcommittee on Solubility
and Equilibrium Data.

Paolo Franzosini, professor of Physical Chemistry at the University
of Pavia, Italy was an enthusiastic supporter of the Solubility Data
Project. He had almost completed Volume 33 of the Solubility Data
Series when he died suddenly on 24 January 1985. His colleagues Paolo
Ferloni, Alberto Schiraldi, and Giorgio Spinolo efficiently completed
the volume. In 1988, Franzosinis wife, with the encouragement
of his colleagues, very generously donated the payments for Volume
33 to the Solubility Data Commission (V.8) to establish the Franzosini
As of 2002, the chair of the new Subcommittee on Solubility
and Equilibrium Data (SSED) receives nominations for the award (The
capital is held by IUPAC and the IUPAC Secretariat does the accounting.).
The recipients of the Franzosini Award are listed in the table above.
