Statistical Mechanics Basis of Macleodâ€™s Formula. M.E. BOUDHHIR and G.A. MANSOORI. Journal of Physical Chemistry, Volume 94, pp.83628364, 1990.
The famous formula of Macleod, relating the surface tension of a liquid in equilibrium with its own vapor to the oneparticle densities in the two phases of the system, is derived. Proved using the statistical mechanical definition of the surface tension.
(Later on Mansoori worked with Escobedo)
