This two-volume set provides a full account of hydrometallurgy. Filled with illustrations and tables, this work covers the flow of source material from the mined or concentrate state to the finished product. It also highlights ion exchange, carbon adsorption and solvent extraction processes for solution purification and concentration. The extensive reference list-over 850-makes this set a valuable resource for extraction and process metallurgists, researchers, and practitioners.
This volume presents a comprehensive introduction to the study of nuclear structure at finite temperature. By measuring the frequencies of the high-energy photons emitted or absorbed by an atomic nucleus it is possible to visualize the structure of that nucleus. In such experiments it is observed that the atomic nucleus displays resonant behavior, absorbing or emitting photons within a relatively narrow range of frequencies. To study emission processes one measures the y-decay of compound nuclei, and by this means it is possible to probe the structure of the nucleus at finite temperature. This book is divided into two main parts: the study of giant resonances based on the atomic nucleus ground state (zero temperature), and the study of the y-decay of giant resonances from compound (finite temperature) nuclei. As this work is an outgrowth of their lectures to fourth-year students at the University of Milan, the authors have placed special emphasis on the general concepts that form the foundation of the phenomenon of giant resonances. This basic subject matter is supplemented with material taken from work going on at the forefront of research on the structure of hot nuclei. Thus, this volume will serve as an essential reference for both young researchers and experienced practitioners.
The authors expound on non-traditional phenomena for transfer theory, which are nevertheless of considerable interest in wave measurements, and bring the advances of transfer theory as close as possible to the practical needs of those working in all areas of wave physics. The book opens with a historical overview of the topic, then moves on to examine the phenomenological theory of radiative transport, blending traditional theory with original ideas. The transport equation is derived from first principles, and the ensuing discussion of the diffraction content of the transport equation and non-classical radiometry is illustrated by practical examples from various fields of physics. Popular techniques of solving the transport equation are discussed, paying particular attention to wave physics and computing the coherence function. The book also examines various problems which are no longer covered by the traditional radiative transfer theory, such as enhanced backscattering and weak localization phenomena, nonlinear transport problems and kinetic equations for waves. This monograph bridges the gap between the simple power balance description in radiative transfer theory and modern coherence theory. It will be of interest to researchers and professionals working across a wide range of fields from optics, acoustics and radar theory to astrophysics, radioastronomy and remote sensing, as well as to students in these areas.
This book comprehensively covers the chemical and physical properties and manufacturing and handling procedures of glycerine and the use of this material in cosmetic and personal care products and in other industrial areas such as testing laboratories and manufacturing and marketing sectors.
Organic photochemistry is the science arising from the application of photochemicalmethods to organic chemistry and organic chemical methods to photochemistry. It is aninterdisciplinary frontier.Intense activity in organic photochemistry in the last decade has produced so vast anaccumulation of factual knowledge that chemists in general have viewed it with awe.Even those chemists engaged in the study of organic photochemistry will find the rate ofdevelopment in the field perplexing to a high degree. This series originated to fill theneed for a critical summary of this vigorously expanding field with the purpose ofdrawing together seemingly unrelated facts, summarizing progress, and clarifyingproblems.Volume 11 continues to fulfill the original, essential role of this unique series byproviding a convenient review of the structural aspects of organic photochemistry. Aswith earlier volumes, this new book offers the research findings of distinguishedauthorities. It stresses timely aspects of organic photochemistry-previously scatteredthroughout the large body of literature-for which necessary critical review has beenlacking.This volume of the series emphasizes the mechanistic details of the di-n:-methanerearrangement . .. the synthetic aspects of the oxadi-n:-methane reaction ... thephotochemistry of carbenium ions and related species .. . photoinduced hydrogen atomabstraction by carbonyl compounds ... and matrix photochemistry of nitrenes, carbenes,and excited triplet states. Complete with numerous illustrations and bibliographiccitations of the literature, this book explores these important processes to the advantageof organic chemists, as an aid to research and as a source for supplementary knowledgeon particular topics .

Innovative Approach to Physicochemical Analysis deals with substantial and conceptual explanations of physicochemical systems, stability, properties and applicability in relevant areas. It tracks and focuses frontiers of molecular interactions and their potential interfaces that are highly applicable in academics and various industries like chemical sciences, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, biochemical engineering, nanosciences, biophysics, drug binding and release systems, cosmetics, agrochemical, rheology of food and nutrition, and critical solvents via interaction engineering. Fundamentally, this book establishes an operational link between 'formulation of liquid mixtures and molecular interaction engineering through the physicochemical properties (PCPs)' as a physicochemical technology of material sciences, depicted as physmatology. This link leads to developing a new thrust area of current research due to its emergence as an interdisciplinary subject for multidisciplinary applications in understanding foundational theories of molecular dynamics in varieties of liquid mixtures. Salient Features: With its coverage and treatment, this is one of the most authoritative and exhaustive treatises in the field of physicochemical properties of liquid mixtures. The core focus of the book is around liquid mixtures, their nature, components, and behavior demonstrated with various theories like surface tension, entropy, friccohesity, etc., and devices like the Survismeter. The book concludes with a rich question bank for the readers to test their knowledge and level of understanding.
The chemical industry is the fastest growing industry in the country, with its present share of about 40% in the national gross industrial output. However, industrial activities involving hazardous chemicals have the potential to cause occupational diseases, injuries, and in serious cases even death, as well as pollution to the environment, if effective safety measures in the workplace are not observed. This makes the study of industrial hygiene, health and chemical safety of the industrial processes and operations in the workplace very important for industrial personnel, academicians, and researchers. Keeping this in mind, the paper ''Industrial Hygiene, Occupational Health and Safety'' has been included in the syllabus of M.Sc. Environmental Sciences. Furthermore, the Diploma in Industrial Safety is compulsory for Safety Officers in the industry. Chemical industries too require guidelines in the form of a book on industrial hygiene and chemical safety. The present book has been designed to meet the requirements of the above-mentioned courses and industries.
