17th IUPAC Conference on Chemical Thermodynamics
28 July-2 August 2002, Rostock, Germany

> Back to Calendar

This meeting will bring together scientists who participate in thermodynamic research in order to discuss the most recent advances and to stimulate new lines of research. Traditional areas, such as thermodynamics of mixtures and solutions, phase equilibria, and thermochemistry, are still of worldwide importance. Decreasing research activity in these areas in the highly developed countries is partly compensated by the activity of an increasing number of researchers from underdeveloped countries and from East European countries. Therefore, these more traditional areas will play a major role in the list of topics covered by this conference.

On the other hand, chemical thermodynamics can make useful and necessary contributions to innovative and rapidly developing fields whose importance will increase dramatically within the next years and decades. The conference will address the thermodynamic aspects of the rapidly developing fields of biothermodynamics and biotechnology, new materials, membrane separation techniques and transport across membranes, and ionic liquids as a new class of solvent systems. Approximately 500 scientific participants from around the world are expected to attend this conference.
