Title: In memory of Yurko Duda, a physicist like few ones

Last February 11th, being in full summit of his career as a scientist, lamentably doctor Yurko Duda passed away. An outstanding scientist participating in the Molecular Engineering Research Program of the Mexican Institute of Petroleum (IMP), Yurko was persistently collaborating in diverse projects of basic and applied research, as well as in the formation of human resources since March 2001. His theoretical research had an important impact on the experimental design of diverse materials and products developed at IMP: foams, detergents for petroleum, coats, inhibitors-dispersants of asphaltenes, and especially on the adsorption phenomenon of polymers and particles on surfaces. This work, among others, has a direct implication in the development of anticorrosives...
