Goal of the conference

The International Symposium on Solubility Phenomena and Related Equilibrium Processes (ISSP) is an established biennial IUPAC symposium organised by the Subcommittee on Solubility and Equilibrium Data gathering international experts on solubility studies, or related subjects, to exchange scientific research and technological applications within the academic, scientific and technical communities. ISSP addresses the general importance of solubility phenomena and associated physical properties in a variety of settings ranging from green chemistry to nuclear waste disposal, always envisaging applications for sustainable development.


ISSP conferences promote the participation and exchange of ideas of a broad spectrum of stakeholders – from academics working in science and technology to researchers in chemical, pharmaceutical, medical, materials (to electronic, building, artistic, etc. applications) industries – searching for innovative solutions in a sustainable development framework (e.g., greenhouse gases solubility, deep eutectic solvents and ionic liquids applications, remediation of mining and industrial impacts, mineral recovery from brines and seawater, energy storage, etc.), which only can be well developed if accurate and reliable data are combined with modern theoretical concepts. 

Target Audience

The ISSP conference aims to provide a forum for trainees, fellows, researchers in academia and industry to share and discuss their cutting-edge results on solubility studies or related subjects and exchange new research and concepts. This year, the 20th meeting will be supported by the momentum and knowledge from the previous ISSP meetings. After a very successful online meeting, this symposium will also celebrate creativity, diversity, and friendship among its participants, promoting the exchange of ideas and fruitful interactions. A workshop on “Assessment of Reliability and Uncertainty of Solubility Data” will be led by Prof. Ala Bazyleva, while a discussion forum on contemporary solubility issues will be also organized.

As an attendee, you will have an opportunity to meet and engage with colleagues, SSED IUPAC members and world-leading scientists on Thermodynamics and Fluid Phase Equilibria, not only through the proposed scientific sessions, but also on the networking events, which will take place throughout the conference. The Franzosini Award, as well as the best presentations awards for young Scientists, will be granted during this event.
