  • Crystalsby Ichiro Sunagawa

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 62.00

    A readable and informative overview of the science of crystal growth for advanced students and researchers. more...

  • Zeolites and Ordered Mesoporous Materialsby Jiri Cejka

    Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 305.00

    Zeolites are the most frequently used industrial catalysts. Their applications range from oil refining, petrochemistry and the synthesis of special chemicals to environmental catalysis. Rapid progress in basic research and the development of new processes has resulted in the first Federation of European Zeolite Associations (FEZA) School on Zeolites.... more...

  • Ionic Compoundsby Claude H. Yoder

    Wiley 2007; US$ 90.95

    A practical introduction to ionic compounds for both mineralogists and chemists, this book bridges the two disciplines. It explains the fundamental principles of the structure and bonding in minerals, and emphasizes the relationship of structure at the atomic level to the symmetry and properties of crystals. This is a great reference for those interested... more...

  • Handbook of Clay Scienceby F. Bergaya; B.K.G. Theng; G. Lagaly

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 230.00

    The first general texts on clay mineralogy and the practical applications of clay, written by R.E. Grim, were published some 40-50 years ago. Since then, a vast literature has accumulated but this information is scattered and not always accessible. The Handbook of Clay Science aims at assembling the scattered literature on the varied and diverse... more...

  • On Biomineralizationby Heinz A. Lowenstam; Stephen Weiner

    Oxford University Press 1989; US$ 274.99

    This work addresses the question of why minerals form in a large variety of organisms, from bacteria to man. The authors discuss the basic principles of mineral formation by organisms, and compare the various mineralization processes. more...

  • Biomineralizationby Erich Konigsberger; LanChi Konigsberger

    Wiley 2006; US$ 290.00

    This title takes an interdisciplinary approach to the central role of solubility in pathological biomineralisation, ranging from traditional thermodynamics and kinetics to unusual concepts such as the PILP process. The scientific background and expertise of the contributors, ranges accordingly from solubility modelling and database development,... more...

  • Modern Luminescence Spectroscopy of Minerals and Materialsby Michael Gaft; Renata Reisfeld; Gerard Panczer

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2005; US$ 209.00

    Luminescence Spectroscopy of Minerals and Materials presents an overview of the general concepts in luminescence spectroscopy as well as experimental methods and their interpretation. Special emphasis is laid on the fluorescence lifetime and the determination of time-resolved spectra. This method enables the exposure of new luminescence in minerals... more...

  • Electron Crystallographyby Thomas E. Weirich; János L. Lábár; Xiaodong Zou

    Springer 2006; US$ 129.00

    The contribution of electron crystallography is quite unique, as it enables to reveal the intimate structure of samples with high accuracy but on much smaller samples than have ever been investigated by X-ray diffraction. This book deals with the novel approaches of electron crystallography for structure determination of nanosized materials. more...

  • Impact of Zeolites and other Porous Materials on the New Technologies at the Beginning of the New Millenniumby R. Aiello; F. Testa; G. Giordano

    Elsevier Science 2002; US$ 255.00

    Crystalline solids with highly structured micro-scale pores are called zeolites. Their well-defined structure and large contact surface make them extremely useful as catalysts. Their most common use is in washing powders. Different features are caused by the shape and size of the pores and the presence of different metals in the crystal structure.... more...

  • Coal Flotation and Fine Coal Utilizationby J. Laskowski

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 290.00

    To stay profitable while complying with environmental regulations requires that the coal industry not only improve fine coal recovery but also finds better ways for its utilization. This is the first monograph on the processing of fine coal which recognizes that all unit operations that handle fine coal depend on coal surface properties, and which... more...
