Developments and Applications in Solubility
Solubility is a basic phenomenon underlying most industrial processes. The objective of this project is to produce a book that will bring together recent developments in solubility studies that have a bearing on industrial applications, especially the rigorous work that is underpinned by thermodynamic considerations.
M. Letcher’s most recent book, Chemical Thermodynamics
for Industry, was published in October 2004 by the Royal
Society of Chemistry (ISBN 0 85404 591 0). It presents
the latest developments in applied thermodynamics and
highlights the role of thermodynamics in the chemical
industry. To learn more about the book, go to <www.iupac.org/publications/
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, separation processes, and the food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industries.
