Abstract

In a paper on aqueous solutions of nonpolar solutes published in 1973 F. H. Stillinger(827) acknowledged his debt to H. S. Frank in these words:

The author has enjoyed a protracted and constructive dialogue with Professor H. S. Frank on the nature of water and aqueous solutions. This interaction has helped the former to maintain in his work a respectable balance between the sterile intricacy of formal theory and the seductive simplicity of poetic “explanation.”
