Franzosini Award 

Analytical Chemistry Division (V)


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.

About Franzosini
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, Franzosini’s 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 Award.

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.
