Joseph D. Menczel, PhD, a recognized expert in thermal analysisof polymers with some thirty years of industrial and academicexperience, is Assistant Technical Director at Alcon Laboratories.He has researched more than 120 polymeric systems in which hestudied calibration of DSCs, glass transition, nucleation,crystallization, melting, stability, mechanical andmicro-mechanical properties of polymers, and polymer-waterinteractions. Dr. Menczel holds six patents and is the author ofseventy scholarly papers. He is the author of two chapters in thebookThermal Characterization of Polymeric Materials. In conductingDSC experiments, Dr. Menczel found a crystal/amorphous interface insemicrystalline polymers, which later became known as the rigidamorphous phase. He is also credited with developing thetemperature calibration of DSCs for cooling experiments.
R. Bruce Prime, PhD, is a consultant to industry and governmentand a recognized authority on the cure and properties ofcross-linked polymer systems. During his thirty-year career withIBM, he led teams responsible for developing and implementingpolymer applications for printer and information storagetechnologies. He holds four patents and is the author of more thanfifty technical papers and the chapter on thermosets in ThermalCharacterization of Polymeric Materials. Dr. Prime is a Fellow ofSPE and NATAS and was the 1989 recipient of the Mettler-ToledoAward in Thermal Analysis. He maintains the Web sitewww.primethermosets.com.
