The 15th International Symposium on Solubility Phenomena and Related Equilibrium Processes (15th ISSP) will be held 23–27 July 2012 in Xining, China. This will be the latest in a successful series of biennial meetings that brings together scientists from diverse subject areas in which solubility and associated equilibria play important roles.
Traditionally the symposium deals with all aspects of solubility: in and between solids, liquids and gases, new experimental methods for the investigation of solubility phenomena, new analytical techniques, new experimental data, prediction of solubilities and phase equilibria by thermodynamic and molecular modelling, correlation with molecular structure, thermodynamic data bases, applications of solubility data and phase equilibria in industry, for the protection of the environment, and in geochemistry.
During the 15th ISSP, many presentations on solubility equilibria will be planned to honor Heinz Gamsjaeger on his 80th birthday in appreciation of his scientific contributions to solid-liquid equilibria research and his organizational activities in the IUPAC Solubility Data Project over many decades.
Solubility studies related to ionic liquids, solid solutions and salt lake brines will be among the main topics of this conference. By emphasizing the role of theoretical, thermodynamical and kinetic models in solubility determinations, and exploring the solution chemistry relevant to solubility phenomena, the meeting is expected to advance solubility research from onerous measurements to theoretical predictions.
The scientific program includes plenary and keynote lectures, oral presentations, a poster session, and a special workshop on “Solubility and Other Equilibria in Salt Brines.” About 20 participants from developing countries will receive financial assistance to enable them to attend the symposium. As always, contributors from more than 30 countries are expected to attend the 15th ISSP. The symposium language will be English.
