By and for engineers and scientists, this comprehensive book covers all aspects of metals chemistry, separation chemistry, and metals separation processes. State-of-the-art papers give news and recent developments and future research needs, of special value and interest to persons from industry, academia, government agencies, commercial and research institutes, information centers and libraries. This valuable work is the complete proceedings of the Metals Speciation, Separation and Recovery International Symposium sponsored by the Industrial Waste Elimination Research Center at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, Illinois, and the Water Research Institute of the Italian National Research Council, Rome, Italy, held in Rome, May 14-19, 1989. The book will be about 800 pages replete with drawings, tables, and charts helpful to understanding and use of the information presented. Written by some 50 specialists from leading institutions and companies from Europe, Asia, North and Latin America, choice information and data in this valuable new volume are organized into seven major parts: One: Chemistry of Toxic Metals; Two: Precipitation Phenomena; Three: Metal Speciations and Complexation in Natural Systems; Four: Sorption Onto Surfaces; Five: Ion Separation; Six: Soils Contamination and Decontamination; Seven: Waste Reduction and Recovery Case Studies.
