In a recent paper, Materials Development Inc. (Arlington Heights, Ill.) approached the problem of topological constraint theory from a different theoretical angle—the team wanted to see whether approaching structure from the theoretical perspective of the thermodynamic model of ideal associated solutions could describe temperature-dependent structure changes.
