Title: Solubility and thermodynamic properties
related to environmental issues
Salminen and Rubin
Completion Date: 2007 - project completed
The objective is to bring together recent developments in SOLUBILITY
and in THERMODYNAMICS which have a bearing
on ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES. This, we believe,
could lead to new ways of thinking and solving problems related to
environmental issues and pollution. The focus is on the importance
of the basic property - SOLUBILITY - in understanding
environmental pollution and hence overcoming pollution problems.
The book will highlight important areas of new research related
to solubility and its applications to environmental issues. There
will be 25 chapters (involving authors from 17 countries), focusing
on areas such as: predicting and modeling of environmental pollutants
from basic thermodynamics considerations and properties such as solubility;
designing remediation and cleaner industrial processes based on basic
thermodynamic properties; predicting and measuring the uptake of pollutants
and new industrial chemicals in humans and in animals; solubility
together with environmental issues related to, health science, mining,
pesticides, soil chemistry, supercritical and phase equilibria separation
processes, gasoline additives, ionic liquids in industry, corrosion
control, surfactants, green synthesis, surface adsorption and biodegradeable
Solubility is a basic phenomenon which determines the
level of most pollution problems, both environmental and industrial.
No book exists which focuses on recent work highlighting the importance
of solubility and thermodynamic properties to environmental issues.
The book will be published by Elsevier (Amsterdam) in 2007.
