Dr. Robert Laughlin Serves as an Adjunct Professor
Robert Laughlin joined the Chemistry Department at Clarkson University
as an adjunct Professor. Dr. Laughlin, who recently retired from
the Procter & Gamble Company, is a world renowned chemist. He has
received numerous national and international awards and is known
for his accomplishments in colloid and surfactant chemistry. His
book on aqueous behavior of surfactants is an instant classic in
the field. His invention of Diffusive Interfacial Transport is an
elegant and unique method to study the phase behavior of surfactants.
Dr. Laughlin is collaborating with CAMP Professor Yuzhuo Li on a
number of research projects. Also he is offering a seminar series
that covers a wide range of topics in applied physical chemistry.
Professor Richard Partch Offers Short Course on Particle Coating
University Professor Richard Partch at CAMP is offering a short
course ""Surface Modification of Particles for Improved Performance:
Introduction to Particle Coating Technology." The other course Instructor
is Dr. Curtis Zimmermann, Manager of New Technologies at Engelhard
Corporation. The short course covers the fundamentals plus applications
of most commercial particle and droplet coating processes currently
in use by industry, as well as new technologies under investigation.
Discussions include encapsulation of liquid droplets, preparation
of templated porous particles, attachment of molecular functionalities
to the surface of particles, and the coating of particles with a
continuous uniform layer of material. This course will take place
at Clarkson University's Center for Advanced Materials Processing
(CAMP) May 16-17, 2002. For more information about this course,
you may call Professor Partch at 315-268-2351 or send email to him
