Essential University Textbook for Students of Metallurgy

Essential University Textbook for Students of Metallurgy

Research and Markets has announced the addition of “Hydrometallurgy: Principles and Applications” to their offering.

The book is concerned with the theoretical principles of hydrometallurgical processes and engineering aspects and also discusses the hydrometallurgical processes of production of copper on the example of leaching of chalcopyrite as the main sulphide mineral of copper processed in industry.

* examines the different techniques involved * discusses the production of specific metals using hydrometalluric processes

* looks at the future of hydrometallurgy

Current state of copper production; Ore minerals; Phase equilibrium of copper and iron sulphides; Equilibriumin aqueous solutions; Thermodynamics of heterogeneous systems in aqueous media; Programs and databases for thermodynamic calculations; Kinetics of heterogeneous reactions of leaching processes; Leaching in chlorides; Extraction of metals from solutions; Effect of electronic structure on leaching of sulphide semiconductors; Experimental methods of investigating hydrometallurgical processes; Leaching of copper sulphides; Morphology and behaviour of sulphur in leaching of sulphides; Examination of the fine structure; Mechanism of leaching of copper sulphides in acid medium; Current state and prospects of hydro-metallurgical processes.
