Developments and Applications in Solubility

SOLUBILITY is one of the most basic and important of thermodynamic properties, and a property which underlies most industrial processes. This book is a collection of 24 chapters involving recent research works, all related to solubility. The objective is to bring together research from disparate disciplines which have a bearing on solubility. Links between these chapters, we believe, could lead to new ways of solving problems and looking at new and also old solubility related issues. Underlying this philosophy is our inherent belief that a book is still an important vehicle for the dissemination of knowledge.

The book has its origins in committee meetings of the International Association of Chemical Thermodynamics. It is a project produced under the auspices of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). In true IUPAC image, the authors, which represent some of the most important names in their respective fields, come from many countries around the world, including: Australia, Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Slovenia, South Africa, Switzerland, Poland, United Kingdom and the United States of America.
The book highlights the Theory, Techniques, interesting and new Results, Modeling and Simulation, and Industrial Applications related to solubility.

> Corresponding project

This new book discusses important topics on one of the most basic of thermodynamic properties, namely SOLUBILITY - a property which underlies most industrial processes. The objective of the book is to bring together new, exciting and disparate topics, all related to SOLUBILITY, in a single volume, so that readers can extend their horizons and relate hitherto unrelated topics, leading to innovative and creative ideas.

Brief Contents
* Experimental, Calculated and Predicted Solubilities
* Solubility Phenomena in "green" Quaternary Mixtures involving Ionic Liquids
* Molecular Simulation Approaches to Solubility
* Solubility of Impurities in Cryogenic Liquids
* Carbon Dioxide in Chemical Processes
