Solubility is one of the most basic and important of thermodynamic properties, and a property that 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 that have a bearing on solubility. Links between these chapters could lead to new ways of solving problems and looking at new and old solubility-related issues. Underlying this philosophy is the inherent belief that a book is still an important vehicle for the dissemination of knowledge. The book highlights the theory, techniques, interesting and new results, modeling and simulation, and industrial applications related to solubility.
The book has its origins in committee meetings of the International Association of Chemical Thermodynamics. It is a project produced under the auspices of IUPAC. In true IUPAC fashion, 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, UK, and USA.
