The Rossini Lecture–A Brief History

In recognition of the contributions of Prof. F. D. Rossini to the work of the IUPAC Commission on Thermodynamics and Thermochemistry during his 39- year membership (1934—1973), the Commission decided, in 1973, to institute a "Rossini Lecture," to be given during the IUPAC International Conferences on Chemical Thermodynamics. The first lecture was given by Prof. Rossini himself at the Fourth Conference held in August 1975 in Montpellier, France. Rossini lecturers were appointed by the Commission on Thermodynamics until 2002, but, as a result of the restructuring of IUPAC, they will be elected in the future by the Board of Directors of the newly established International Association of Chemical Thermodynamics. The text of these lectures is published in Pure and Applied Chemistry (see table) and in the Journal of Chemical Thermodynamics (see table below).
