Postdoctoral Fellow, Physical Chemistry - Gutowsky

Yes I am the "Franz Mairinger" who attended the U of I in Urbana ( Phys. Chem.Dep., Prof. Gutowsky) in the years 1962/63 and I was initiated 1962 into the Alpha Chi Sigma fraternity. I had a room at the fraternity house and took my meals there. I have still a pleasant memory of my stay. 1968 I changed my original field (NMR) for my former hobby (art history) and left the technical University Vienna and changed to the Academy of fine arts. I retired 1998, but I am still engaged in (2) reserach projects at the technical University. I am mainly concerned with the technical examination of paintings and mediaeval manuscripts.

Of course I am interested to join you on the Internet, you will find my CV below. I am looking forward to further contacts with old (and nearly forgotten) friends.

Yours, Franz
