Isadore Amdur, professor of physical chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, died at the age of 60 on 3 June 1970 following an operation. He was known for his research on intramolecular forces with the technique of scattering neutral atoms and molecules at high energies and for his study of transport phenomena. He was also the author of 'Chemical Kinetics'.
Educated at the University of Pittsburgh, Amdur received his PhD there in 1932. He then joined MIT as a National Research Fellow in Physical Chemistry and was appointed as an instructor in 1934 and then as a professor in 1951. During 1944-5 Amdur was associated with the Manhattan District Project. Recently he was named to the National Science Foundation Undergraduate Science Advisory Committee.
