Description: Materials such as molten salts and liquid metals have become more and more important in the field of nuclear engineering, solar and thermal energy, fuel cells and related fields. The physical properties of molten salts are closely related to their ionic liquid structure and it is essential to know this structure for the systematic understanding of the physical properties.
Description: During the past several years there has been remarkable interest and activity in two fields of the fused salt chemistry, namely Molten Salt Extractive Metallurgy and High-Temperature Fuel Cells. The required fundamental investigations for improving industrial processes are necessarily devoted to all aspects of the reactivity in molten salts. Therefore, most of the relevant disciplines are represented here: electrochemistry, spectroscopy and computer modelling.
Description: To commemorate Australia's Bicentenary year in 1988, a special volume was published, containing research and review papers by leading authorities from all over the world. The book focusses on the mechanical behaviour of engineering materials.
Description: The importance of epitaxial growth has grown substantially since the early application of semiconductor systems. At present metals, high Tc superconductors, garnets, optical materials and numerous systems grown epitaxially are known.
