The aim of this Subject
Division is to make the right choice of reaction or separation medium for
numerous chemical and biotechnological processes and thus to ensure the
sustainable design of processes and products. The different solvent concepts
are subsumed under the term 'Advanced Fluids'.
The topics dealt with are
strongly oriented towards interdisciplinary work. Joint events stimulate
discussion of the application of advanced fluids in the individual fields.
Promising application areas span the fields of reaction/catalysis (incl.
biocatalysis), separation, electrochemistry, performance additives, engineering
fluids, analysis/sensors and purification processes. The biennial international
conference 'Green Solvents' is an important information platform.
