Extract all the metals information you need
A wealth of data on metals and their extraction is revealed in
this comprehensive handbook. The aim of this book is to provide a
clear description of how a particular metal is extracted
industrially from different raw materials, and on what its
important compounds are.
The present work is a collection of 58 articles written by over
280 specialists. It supplies thousands of top-quality
illustrations, diagrams and charts, and provides hand-picked
references ensuring the most up-to-date coverage.
A unique feature of this reference work is its structure. The
system used here is according to an economic classification, which
reflects mainly the uses, occurrence and economic value of metals.
First, the ferrous metals, i.e., those used in the production of
iron and steel, are outlined. Then, nonferrous metals are
subdivided into primary, secondary, light, precious, refractory,
scattered, radioactive, rare earth, ferroalloy metals, and,
finally, the alkali and the alkaline earth metals are described.
The handbook is an essential aid for the practising metallurgist.
Mining engineers, mineralogists, chemical engineers, chemists and
geologists will find it a comprehensive desk reference. It is of
interest to engineers and scientists in industry seeking an
exhaustive sourcebook, and it should be present in every library.
