Description: The theme of this special collection of peer-reviewed papers is the preparation and application of High-Performance Mineral-based Powders (HQMP). Here, HQMP refers to powder prepared from natural minerals with high specifications. It is predicted that the area of application of HQMP will become increasingly extensive. The future development of HQMP lies in the further exploitation and improvement of the manufacturing and production technologies of HQMP-orientated towards markets, and this collection will provide a handy roadmap for these likely developments.

Description: Polymers make up one of the three main raw material groups used in the modern world, together with metals and inorganic non-metallics. They are widely used in all fields of economic development and scientific & technological innovation, and continue to play an increasingly important role. As China’s modern manufacturing forges ahead, going from a large producing country to a powerful manufacturing state, the extent of the knowledge, the tendency to innovation and the technical skill brought to bear on advanced polymer processing increase daily. There is a trend towards rapid development involving high performance and environmental-friendliness, backed up by lots of new research performed by the scientific and engineering communities.

Description: Advanced Materials and Processing are important areas of research in Engineering Science and Technology, and require a critical focus on bridging the gap between researchers and engineers. Advanced materials and processing play an increasingly important role in the global economy and in daily life. Researchers and engineers strive to develop new devices and processes, using mathematical and analytical tools to create technologies to handle the rapidly expanding range of materials and manufacturing processes. The Advances in Materials and Processing Technologies conference series creates a stimulating environment for the research collaboration of scholars at the local, national and international levels, contributes to the collective development of a knowledge-based society and economy.

Description: With the rapid development of science and technology, the functionalization of structural materials, and the structurization of functional materials are attracting increasing attention in the scientific and engineering fields. The development of multi-functional materials and structures (MFMS), at the micro- and nano-scale levels, has grown rapidly due to the requirement of increasing safety margins for all infrastructure, biomedical and engineering elements. Multi-functional material systems are capable of performing multiple “primary” functions, simultaneously or sequentially in time, and are specially designed to improve system performance via a reduction in the redundancy between sub-system materials and functions.

The main focus of this collection of peer-reviewed articles is three different aspects of biohydrometallurgy: this is the field of microbial ecology which is the key to answering central questions concerning not only the diversity and behavior of micro-organisms in commercial operations, but also possible applications in biohydrometallurgy of extremophiles coming from very different environments. This covers metal recovery bioprocesses, including basic and applied studies of bioleaching and bio-oxidation; but also bioflotation. A large part of the book is given over to interfacial studies which contribute to the understanding of the interaction between surfaces and micro-organisms during those processes. Also covered are the remediation of mining activities and environmental protection as related to mining and mining industries.
