SOLUBILITY is one of the most basic and important of thermodynamic properties,
and a property which 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 which have a bearing on solubility. Links between
these chapters, we believe, could lead to new ways of solving problems
and looking at new and also old solubility related issues. Underlying
this philosophy is our inherent belief that a book is still an important
vehicle for the dissemination of knowledge.
The book has its origins in committee meetings of the International
Association of Chemical Thermodynamics. It is a project produced under
the auspices of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry
(IUPAC). In true IUPAC image, 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, United Kingdom and the United States of America.
The book highlights the Theory, Techniques, interesting and new Results,
Modeling and Simulation, and Industrial Applications related to solubility.
This new book discusses
important topics on one of the most basic of thermodynamic properties,
namely SOLUBILITY - a property which underlies most industrial processes.
The objective of the book is to bring together new, exciting and disparate
topics, all related to SOLUBILITY, in a single volume, so that readers
can extend their horizons and relate hitherto unrelated topics, leading
to innovative and creative ideas.
