Howard C. Berkowitz nominated the version dated December 27, 2008, 01:00 (ET, GMT-5) of this article for approval. The Engineering Workgroup, Chemistry Workgroup and Physics Workgroup oversaw this approval and the article was approved on, or around, January 3, 2009.

Approval of an updated version

Author: Milton Beychok

These are the minor (almost trivial) changes made since the article was approved:

(1) On Feb. 21, 2009; Apr. 17, 2010; and May 1, 2011, I added internal wiki links to other CZ articles.
(2) On Sept. 11, 2009, I added these three words to a sentence naming the Clausius-Clapeyron equation: "this form of".
(3) On August 11, 2011, I replaced an inactive external hyper-link with an active one.
(4) On On Sept. 21, 2010, I improved the vapor pressure chart by placing small black circles on the chart to emphasize the boiling points.
Then, a few day ago, I added the new photo of boiling water to the intro section.

As you can see, all of my edits were very minor and trivial (in my opinion). Milton Beychok 21:58, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

The major additions made to the article (as of this date) by Henry Padlecklas are useful, well written and should be included in the current re-approval. However, the section he plans on researching, writing and adding in the future (exactly when is not known) will probably call for another re-approval at that time.

As discussed on the article's Talk page, I made a minor revision to the lede to comply with comments by Sandy Harris and Peter Schmitt. Peter Schmitt also made a minor lede revision. Milton Beychok 00:34, 18 February 2012 (UTC)
I also made some minor formatting changes to the LaTeX equation and its parameters to comply with comments from Peter Jackson. Milton Beychok 00:34, 18 February 2012 (UTC)

Peter Schmitt

The changes made to the approved versions are minor revisions and improvements that do not affect its scientific content. I recommend approval. --Peter Schmitt 11:34, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

The introduction has been revised and now explains why the "naive" layman's definition is not correct.

Henry A. Padleckas has added two sections that discuss the boiling point of compounds and mixtures. They are a useful addition. I recommend approval of the expanded version.
