This instruction manual and prepared reference covers all very important features of the data on hand on iron oxides.
A initial review bankruptcy discusses iron oxide minerals with their precise constructions and houses, earlier than the next part is going directly to take care of the formation and transformation of iron oxides, protecting geological, artificial, scientific, and microbiological in addition to physico-chemical elements. A bankruptcy on corrosion from a chemical engineering perspective completes this part. next chapters are dedicated to characterization strategies. along with such classical tools as IR/Raman and Mössbauer spectroscopy, specified recognition is targeted on X-ray dependent thoughts, magnetic measurements, and electron microscopy for structural characterization. the ultimate part is principally dedicated to fascinating new purposes of magnetic iron oxides, for instance, in medication. extra chapters on geo/paleomagnetism, environmental features, and pigments illustrate the total scope of applications.
A must-read for somebody operating within the box.
