Rare Earths '98
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The rare earth elements and compounds have unique spectroscopic, magnetic and chemical properties. These materials not only provide interesting windows into many aspects of science but are being used in an ever increasing number of strategic applications, particularly in the high growth sectors of world economics such as electronics, environmental protection (catalysis), magnets, nuclear medicine therapy and agriculture.
The present book covers all aspects of the field, including Photophysics, Luminescence and Spectroscopy, Magnetic Materials, Nuclear Medicine Applications,Minerals and Materials Characterisation, Extraction and Co-ordination Chemistry, Electronic and Electrical Properties, Agricultural Applications, and other NewApplications.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The unique spectroscopic, magnetic, and chemical properties of the elements and their compounds are making them increasingly used in such fields as electronics, environmental protection, magnets, nuclear medicine therapy, and agriculture. Here producers and consumers, researchers and academics, and developers and technologists present 80 papers on photophysics, luminescence, and spectroscopy; magnetic materials; nuclear medicine; mineral and materials characterization; coordination chemistry; extraction and coordination chemistry, agricultural applications, and marketing and new applications. A sampling of specific topics shows a proposal for new doping precursors for rare earth ions in the glass amplifying medium, the holmium-166 therapy of malignant and benign diseases, and the complex formation constant and hydration number change of aqua-rare earth ions. The papers are double spaced.
