Later, Dmitri went on to study capillarity and surface tension. This led to his theory of an “absolute boiling point,” which we know now as critical temperature. While studying in Heidelberg, Dmitri made an acquaintance with A.P. Borodin, a chemist who achieved greater fame as a composer. In 1860, at the Chemical Congress in Karlsruhe, Dmitri got the opportunity to hear Cannizzaro discuss ... between scientists in Europe and the United States.
