After the great success of the 1st edition, the Green Solvents Workshop will be offered again in conjunction with the GSC9 conference in 2018. The target of the workshop is to provide background knowledge on different advanced fluids and green solvents especially for PhD Students, Post-Docs and early stage researchers. This offers the unique chance to get a close insight in the topic of advanced fluids given by well known experts from academia and industry. The prospective lectures cover molecular and engineering principles of non-conventional solvents, comprising aqueous phases, ionic liquids and supercritical fluids, among others. The context of safety and toxicity as well as the application of different solvents in industrial processes will also be discussed. Especially the hands-on work with different tools for the use of advanced fluids in practical examples will be be a focus of the problem sessions.
Further information will be given at the end of 2017.
