Ed Paul

We were sorry to hear recently that Ed Paul has died.

On a personal level, we shared a lot of laughs and discussions at meetings and conferences of the North American Mixing Forum.

Professionally, Ed was the lead author of the Handbook of Industrial Mixing and before that had an outstanding chemical engineering career with Merck.  Ed's observations of mixing effects on homogeneous reactions spawned a whole new field of research and ultimately led to understanding of phenomena such as micromixing and mesomixing.
Ed's 1971 paper following his PhD thesis spawned a whole new field of chemical engineering research
Scale-up Systems was delighted to host Ed in Dublin for a few days in August 2002, when he shared his experiences of Pharmaceutical chemical development and scale-up and delivered extensive notes that we used to strengthen our model library and knowledge base for customers.
