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.
