This new project is a companion to an earlier IUPAC project Heat Capactities: Liquids Solutions, and Vapors, which was published as a book with the same name by the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2010 (ISBN 978-0-85404-176-3). After the success and publication of Heat Capacities, RSC felt there was a need to bring together chemical thermodynamics topics, which are related to volume properties. This new project will also be collated and produced as a book (to be published by RSC) with the aim of publishing it by the end of 2013 or early in 2014.
The two companion projects have their origin in the committee meetings of the International Association of Chemical Thermodynamics. The new project, which only recently got off the ground, so far has commitments for 24 chapters from some of the most important researchers in their respective fields. They come from 13 countries: Austria, Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, Poland, Spain, South Africa, UK, and the USA. The project is ongoing and new topics and authors could well be added before the deadline for submission of manuscripts, which is at the end of September 2013.
One of the objectives of the book is to bring together research from disparate disciplines that is related to volume properties. Having the related topics in one volume, the editors believe, could have a synergistic effect leading to new ways of solving problems.
The book is also aimed at highlighting the very latest approaches to problems related to volumes and presenting new data in a constructive manner. It will be ideal for anyone working in any of the fields discussed or for those thinking of entering one of these fields.
The book will include:
- a presentation of the underlying theory
- the most important experimental techniques
- thermophysical characterization
- volume properties of liquids vapours and mixtures including electrolyte and non-electrolytes
- volume properties involving ionic liquids and molten salts
- gases in liquids
- high-pressure effects
- virial coefficients
- speed of sound measurements
- critical behavior
- protein solutions
- data on aqueous solutions
- presentations of different modeling and computer simulations, density standards
- up-to-date references to mid–2013
The authors will adhere to the nomenclature and symbols of the IUPAC “Green Book” and any deviations will be defined and explained.
