NECTAR Advanced school on aqua ions and hydrolysis-related equilibria

About: Some chemical elements have characteristics that make the study and understanding of their chemical equilibria particularly difficult. These include elements with a strong hydrolytic character and those with several redox states. Both are the subject of this advanced school. The program will be the result of a dynamic ongoing discussion, please watch for updates.

Date: September 29th, 2023.

Place: Ruđer Bošković Institute, Zagreb, Croatia.
