  • The Ore Minerals Under the Microscopeby Bernhard Pracejus

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 415.00

    This is a very detailed colour atlas for ore/opaque minerals (ore microscopy) with the main emphasis on name and synonyms, mineral group, chemical composition, information about major formation environment, optical data, reflection colour/shade comparison with 4 common/standard minerals of a similar colour or grey shade, up to 5 high-quality photos... more...

  • Zeolitesby L. Bonneviot; S. Kaliaguine

    Elsevier Science 1995; US$ 72.95

    Formerly, the catalytic use of zeolites was exclusive to the field of acid catalysis. Nowadays, zeolites also find applications as catalysts in a wide array of chemical reactions such as; base catalyzed reactions, Redox reactions and catalytic reactions on transition metals and their complexes in confined environments. The concepts of Brønsted or... more...

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 205.00

    The atlas contains an entry for each unique zeolite framework type. The term zeolite framework refers to a corner-sharing network of tetrahedrally coordinated atoms. This 5 th edition is again an updated version of the previous compilation, and the number of entries has risen significantly to 133. more...

  • New Developments in Zeolite Science and Technologyby Y. Murakami; A. Iijima; J.W. Ward

    Elsevier Science 1986; US$ 456.25

    Zeolites are attracting a great deal of attention in various fields of science and technology. Many exciting new developments have occurred in their industrial application and these developments have in turn inspired much new significant fundamental research. This proceedings volume, containing 121 contributed papers, an introductory talk, two plenary... more...

  • Quartz Cementation in Sandstonesby R. Worden; Sadoon Morad

    Wiley 2009; US$ 103.00

    Quartz is the major porosity-reducing cement in many sandstone sequences. Therefore, Quartz cements represent a key source of petrographic and geochemical information about diagenetic history. They are also the major determinant of sandstone reservoir quality. While the ultimate goal of research in this area is to make robust predictions about the... 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...

  • Dolomitesby B. H. Purser; M. E. Tucker; D. H. Zenger

    Wiley 2009; US$ 150.00

    This volume contains 23 state-of-the-art papers presented at the Dolomieu Conference on Carbonate Platforms and Dolomitization held in September 1991 in Ortisei, Italy. The conference was co-sponsored by the International Association of Sedimentologists (IAS) and the Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM), and marked the 200th anniversary of the 1791... more...

  • Biomineralizationby Roland K. O. Sigel; Astrid Sigel; Helmut Sigel

    Wiley 2008; US$ 460.00

    Biomineralization is a hot topic in the area of materials, and this volume in the Metals Ions in Life Sciences series takes a systematic approach, dealing with all aspects from the fundamentals to applications. Key biological features of biomineralization, such as gene directed growth and the role of enzymes are covered, as are new areas, including... more...

  • Ore Texturesby Roger Taylor

    Springer 2010; US$ 179.00

    Understanding ore textures is fundamental to understanding the genesis of an ore deposit, which in turn allows exploration and mining geologists to build their conceptual understanding of the deposits they encounter. This book covers the basic building blocks of textural recognition beginning with infill, alteration and overprinting. more...
