Title: Developments and applications in solubility

Task Group
: Trevor Letcher

Member: Glen Hefter

Completion Date: 2007 - project completed

Solubility is a basic phenomenon underlying most industrial processes. The objective of this project is to prepare a book that will bring together recent developments in solubility studies that have a bearing on industrial applications, especially that rigorous work which is underpinned by thermodynamic considerations.

The book will highlight important areas of new research involving theory, techniques, results, modeling, simulation and industrial applications related to solubility. It will include chapters on super critical fluids, data banks, "green chemicals", molten salts, liquid-liquid phase equilibria, nanotechnology, industrial solutions including cryogenic solutions, predictions, simulations and molecular modeling, gases in polymers, metallurgical and hydrometallurgical processes, food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry and separation processes.
