Aqueous Systems at Elevated Temperatures and Pressures: by Roberto Fernandez-Prini,A. H. Harvey,D. A. Palmer

By Roberto Fernandez-Prini,A. H. Harvey,D. A. Palmer

The overseas organization for the houses of Water and Steam (IAPWS) has produced this booklet so as to supply an available, up to date review of vital points of the actual chemistry of aqueous platforms at excessive temperatures and pressures. those structures are imperative to many parts of medical research and business program, together with electrical energy new release, business steam platforms, hydrothermal processing of fabrics, geochemistry, and environmental purposes. The authors’ objective is to provide the cloth at a degree that serves either the graduate pupil looking to study the cutting-edge, and in addition the economic engineer or chemist trying to advance extra services or to discover the knowledge had to clear up a selected problem.

The wide selection of individuals for whom this subject is critical presents a problem. complex paintings during this quarter is sent between actual chemists, chemical engineers, geochemists, and different experts, who is probably not conscious of parallel paintings via these open air their very own distinctiveness. the actual features of high-temperature aqueous actual chemistry of curiosity to at least one might be beside the point to a different; another may need a similar simple info yet in a really varied form.

To serve these types of constituencies, the booklet contains a number of chapters that disguise the foundational thermophysical houses (such as fuel solubility, section habit, thermodynamic houses of solutes, and delivery houses) which are of curiosity throughout quite a few purposes. The presentation of those subject matters is meant to be obtainable to readers from a number of backgrounds. different chapters deal with primary parts of extra really good curiosity, resembling serious phenomena and molecular-level resolution constitution. numerous chapters are extra application-oriented, addressing parts corresponding to power-cycle chemistry and hydrothermal synthesis. As befits the diversity of pursuits addressed, a few chapters offer extra theoretical assistance whereas others, comparable to these on acid/base equilibria and the solubilities of steel oxides and hydroxides, emphasize experimental ideas and knowledge analysis.

- Covers either the idea and functions of all Hydrothermal strategies
- offers an available, up to date evaluate of vital facets of the actual chemistry of aqueous platforms at excessive temperatures and pressures
- The presentation of the e-book is comprehensible to readers from numerous backgrounds
