Title: Heat capacities of liquids and vapours

Task Group
: Trevor Letcher and Emmerich Wilhelm

Members: A. Asenbaum, Juliana Boerio-Goates, Michael Frenkel, J. Gmehling, Tony Goodwin, Jean-Pierre Grolier, Dietmar Paschek, Peter Privalov, Marek Pyda, J. David Raal, Stanislawc L Randzio, J.V. Sengers, Toshiharu Takagi, Jan Thoen, Chris Wormald

The purpose is to produce a single, up-to-date volume on all aspects of heat capacity for liquids and vapours, pure substances and mixtures written by the world's experts in each of about 20 subject areas.

The book will contain about 20 chapters on all aspects of the heat capacity of liquids and vapours. The chapters will involve theory, experimental methods, and techniques, interesting results on soultions, liquids, vapours, mixtures, electrolytes, critical regions, polymers, glassy states, reactions, effects of high pressure and phase changes. Each chapter will be written by an expert in the respective fields.

A list of the possible chapters are given below.
