Pirketta Scharlin Received the 2003 Franzosini Award

At the 2nd Annual Meeting of the Subcommittee on Solubility and Equilibrium Data, the Franzosini Award went to Dr. Pirketta Scharlin in appreciation of her continuous scientific and administrative contributions to the Solubility Data Project. It should be emphasized that Dr. Scharlin became the first scientist to receive the Franzosini Award twice.

Scharlin’s expertise in the solubility of gases in liquids has led to one of the most successful sold-out volumes in the Solubility Data Series: Vol. 62, titled Carbon Dioxide in Water and Aqueous Electrolyte Solutions, published in 1995. At present she is chairing the Task Group of the project titled "Carbon dioxide in aqueous non-electrolyte solutions," an undertaking of the section on Solubility Data Related to Industrial Processes.

Dr. Scharlin served from 2000–2001 as chair of the Subcommittee on Solubility of Gases in Liquids. Since 2002 she has been a member of the Subcommittee on Solubility and Equilibrium Data, where she of course acts as the speaker for the task groups working on projects dealing with the solubility of gases in liquids. In addition to her scientific and administrative activities she is also successfully recruiting younger scientists interested in solubility data projects, such as Justin Salminen (Helsinki University of Technology), winner of the 2001 Franzosini Award.

Dr. Scharlin is docent and teaching assistant with the Department of Chemistry, University of Turku (Finland). Her research interests include not only solubilities of gases in liquids, but also excess thermodynamic properties of binary and ternary liquid mixtures.
