1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, which separated into several territories and independent countries. This was the code used in international transactions to and from bank accounts in the trust territory.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. This was used as an international standard for shipping to the trust territory.

In both cases, the code is obsolete.

Phase Transition Properties of the UV-Curable Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Phase Change Materials (Micro-PCMs)
Considering L, [A.sub.0], and [T.sub.*] are material-dependent coefficients, one could vary the effective phase change temperature of the NLC system by varying the typical distortion length R.
The latent heat capacities of the composite PCMs containing the PEGs with different [M.sub.w] are obviously lower than those of the pristine PEGs due to the incorporation of the AB that does not undergo phase change. Consequently, in most cases in this study, the melting enthalpies of the PEG/AB composites almost show agreement with the relevant mixture rules.
