Conference on Solution Chemistry (ICSC), held under the auspices
of IUPAC, took place from 2631 August 2001 in Vaals, Netherlands,
near the city of Aachen, Germany. Fifteen invited speakers (six
plenary lectures and nine section lectures) reported on advances
in solution chemistry, covering the following topics:
Ionic liquids and molten salts
Colloids in liquids
were an additional 55 oral presentations and 44 poster presentations.
The meeting was attended by 110 participants and 40 accompanying
persons from 24 countries. The lectures and posters were of high

series will continue in 2003 at Debrecen, Hungary and in 2005 at
Ljubljana, Slovenia. Plenary lectures are published in the November
2001 issue of Pure and Apllied Chemistry, and for which
