He worked in various projects related to the synthesis, characterization (by IR, HPLC, NMR, UV-VIS, X-Ray diffraction) and physicochemical studies of Rhenium complexes.
Starting in the 1960s and continuing to this day, John has not only clarified the physicochemical laws that govern the behavior of electrochemical systems, he has also demonstrated how to use these laws to correctly formulate and solve problems associated with batteries, fuel cells, electrolyzers, and related technologies.
For that reason alone a physicochemical or “stereochemical” theory is not inconsistent with design.
In point of fact, the context of di Giulio statement concerns an "extreme interpretation" (physicochemical determinism).
Do the physicochemical distances between codons reflect the physicochemical distances between amino acids?
The ecology and physicochemical characteristics of lakes in the subarctic and arctic regions of the Yukon Territory, Fennoscandia (Finland, Norway), the Northwest Territories and Northern Quebec.
The basic design principles for physicochemical systems, which include the highest productivity, least footprint, and production of desired components at the expense of waste generation, contradict the nature's principles.
Further study of the regulation of composition, physiological and physicochemical properties of the immediate environment of organs, tissues and cells, conducted by Stern and her school, is not only important theoretically, but has practical significance as well.
Further, good philosophers understand that Trevors and Abel propositions "There is no physicochemical causal link between codon and corresponding amino acid" and "Inanimacy cannot self-organize" pretty much closes the lid on Darwinian mechanisms as the sole reasons for the origin of complex biostructures.
Hydrological regime and topography are generally the most important determinants of the establishment and maintenance of specific types of wetland and wetland processes, creating the unique physicochemical conditions that make wetlands different from both deepwater aquatic systems and well-drained terrestrial systems.
