Abstract
Description
The use of melting points as useful physical constants for the characterization of chemical substances rests on a recognition that every pure solid substance has its own characteristic melting point and latent heat of fusion – concepts which, in turn, may be traced back to the late 18th century and the work of Joseph Black in Scotland, Johan Wilcke in Sweden, and Antoine Lavoisier in France.
