  • Zeolites for Cleaner Technologiesby M. Guisnet; Jean-Pierre Gilson

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 187.00

    This book, written and edited by leading authorities from academia and industrial groups, covers both preventive- and curative-zeolite-based technologies in the field of chemical processing.The opening chapter presents the state of the art in zeolite science. The two subsequent chapters summarize the chemistries involved in the processes and the constraints... more...

  • Progress in Zeolites Scienceby R.R. Xu; Z. Goa; Y. Xu

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1995; US$ 124.00

    The chemistry of microporous materials is among the most rapidly developing fields of chemical research. It is extended from the conventional zeolites which are mineral aluminosilicates with microporous host lattice structures. Both zeolites and microporous crystalline materials are molecular sieves which possess open frameworks in which guest species... more...

  • Kentucky Agateby Roland L. McIntosh; Warren H. Anderson

    The University Press of Kentucky 2013; US$ 45.00

    Among the rarest and most prized minerals, agate is one of the most exquisite examples of nature's artwork. A striking rock that occurs in various shapes and sizes, with a vivid assortment of colors, agates are coveted by collectors and becoming rarer across the globe. Although the Bluegrass State is usually overlooked in the international study of... more...

  • 2001, A Clay Odysseyby E. Dominguez; G. Mas; F. Cravero

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 315.00

    The meeting was organized by a local university committee and 205 delegates from 35 countries took part. European participation was low due to the economic crisis experienced by national air lines. During the conference, the AIPEA medals were awarded to Gerhard Lagaly and Tom Pinnavaia. This volume of the Conference Proceedings contains 85 out of... more...

  • Clay Mineral Cements in Sandstonesby Richard Worden; Sadoon Morad

    Wiley 2009; US$ 230.00

    Clay minerals are one of the most important groups of minerals that destroy permeability in sandstones. However, they also react with drilling and completion fluids and induce fines migration during hydrocarbon production. They are a very complex family of minerals that are routinely intergrown with each other, contain a wide range of solid solutions... 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
