Research on supercritical fluids and their industrial applications has enjoyed a remarkable growth over the past thirty years. The field has matured significantly and along with it the nature of the research has become more advanced. Applications have expanded to more challenging and sophisticated areas that require a deeper understanding of the fundamentals that are involved. There is now a need for unified treatments that can provide the fundamentals that are common to seemingly different applications and pave the way to new advances in the field.
The objective of the series is to produce high-level pedagogical monographs that can also be used as a teaching tool or serve as key reference volumes. The books are authored by one or two experts rather than being edited volumes that are collections of chapters written by several different authors. The goal is to produce coherent volumes that are uniform in style and terminology that systematically treat a given topical area starting from the basics.
