AUTHOR INFORMATION

CHARLES M. GUTTMAN obtained his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Brandeis University. Guttman is a fellow of the American Physical Society and a member of the American Chemical Society. He is actively involved with the American Society for Testing and Materials committees D20 on plastics and E37 on thermal analysis. He is also the alternate NIST representative for the ANSI committee IT9–1. He is a research chemist in the Polymers Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, where his research focuses on the diffusion of small molecules in polymers, solution properties of polymers, and crystallization of polymers. In these areas, he has authored more than 50 publications. Address: Polymers Division, National Institute of Standards and Technology, United States Department of Commerce, Gaithersburg, Md. 20899.

KENNETH L. JEWETT obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland at College Park in 1978 where he majored in inorganic chemistry while having a minor concentration in physical chemistry. He is a research chemist in the Polymers Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. During his career, he has focused on the study of metal and organometallic reactions, the developemnt of ultrasensitive techniques to speciate and quantitate trace levels of analytes, and the study of reaction rates and equilibria of species in selected environments. He has 28 publications to his credit involving research in those areas. Address: Polymers Division, National Institute of Standards and Technology, United States Department of Commerce, Gaithersburg, MD 20899.
