The aim of the workshop is to support practitioners in their practical applications of solvents. This will be achieved by providing a review of knowledge with an overview including recent research into solvent effects, current findings into solvent application techniques, and an open forum for discussions covering workshop participants’ questions, practical experiences and opinions regarding solvent choices and application.
A more detailed description of the workshop is available on request.
