Title: Developments and applications in solubility
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.
