Chemical metallurgy: principles and practice

Front Cover
Wiley-VCH, Sep 26, 2003 - Technology & Engineering - 811 pages
Chemical metallurgy is a well founded and fascinating branch of the wide field of metallurgy.
This book provides detailed information on both the first steps of separation of desirable minerals and the subsequent mineral processing operations. The complex chemical processes of extracting various elements through hydrometallurgical, pyrometallurgical or electrometallurgical operations are explained.
In the choice of material for this work, the author made good use of the synergy of scientific principles and industrial practices, offering the much needed and hitherto unavailable combination of detailed treatises on both compiled in one book.
