Solubility Phenomena and Related Equilibrium Processes
25–30 July 2010, Leoben, Austria
The 14th International Symposium on Solubility Phenomena and Related Equilibrium Processes will be held 25–30 July 2010 in Leoben, Austria. The symposium will include a workshop called “From Chemical Equilibrium to Process Modelling, Inclusion of Kinetics into Thermodynamic Reasoning.”
Phenomena related to the solubility of solids, liquids, and gases with one another, and the homogeneous equilibria existing between the dissolved species, are of interest for scientists, technologists, and medical practitioners in a wide array of disciplines. Data from solubility and related equilibria are, for example, employed to determine thermodynamic quantities, to simulate chemical processes, and to assess the effectiveness of a given pharmacological treatment.
The 14th ISSP will put an emphasis on solubility aspects of aqueous salt solutions, molten salts, and ionic liquids. Particularly welcome are contributions to the solubility of lithium compounds in solutions and melts and its possible relevance for extraction, purification, and lithium battery technology.
The 14th ISSP will also stress the chemical basis of hydrometallurgy and the application of chemical concepts in industrial processes. An effort will be made to proceed beyond classical thermodynamics by including discussions on constrained equilibria, irreversible thermodynamics, and phase transformation kinetics. The symposium and workshop will bring together experts in chemical, metallurgical, and computational aspects of classical solubility phenomena and related equilibrium processes as well as dissolution and precipitation kinetics. The theme has significance to future key technologies in hydro- and pyrometallurgy as well as materials science.
