Several applications of molten salts are presented, such as metal-molten salt systems, room temperature glass formation, and room temperature melts. Several examples of applications highlight the importance of molten salts in various industries (batteries, pyrochemical reprocessing of nuclear fuel, synthesis and catalysis). The basic concepts of the structure, dynamics, electrochemistry, interfacial and thermodynamic properties are described. Experimental methods for investigating structural, dynamical, electrochemical thermodynamical and interfacial properties are detailed, as well as techniques for data collection and analysis. Scientists, engineers and technologists should find thIS volume a useful reference source covering a wide spectrum of fundamental concepts and modern technologies.
