Zeolites are attracting a great deal of attention in various fields of science and technology. Many exciting new developments have occurred in their industrial application and these developments have in turn inspired much new significant fundamental research. This proceedings volume, containing 121 contributed papers, an introductory talk, two plenary lectures and nine invited lectures, is valuable not only for the quantity but also for the high quality and originality of the contents. The topics addressed cover all fields of science and technology related to natural and synthetic zeolites, namely: mineralogy, geology, structure, synthesis, ion-exchange and modification, sorption, catalysis, and technical applications (including agricultural uses). The numerous new results and concepts presented and the particularly timely publication of the volume make it a must for all involved with zeolites.

This handbook is a reference guide for selecting and carrying out numerous methods of soil analysis. It is written in accordance with analytical standards and quality control approaches.It covers a large body of technical information including protocols, tables, formulae, spectrum models, chromatograms and additional analytical diagrams. The approaches are diverse, from the simplest tests to the most sophisticated determination methods in the physical chemistry of mineralogical and organic structures, available and total elements, soil exchange complex, pesticides and contaminants, trace elements and isotopes. As a basic reference, it will be particularly useful to scientists, engineers, technicians, professors and students, in the areas of soil science, agronomy, earth and environmental sciences as well as in related fields such as analytical chemistry, geology, hydrology, ecology, climatology, civil engineering and industrial activities associated with soil.

Cleveland - Encyclopedia of Energy (6 Volumes Set)

This six-volume encyclopedia is a timely information resource as rising energy costs and consumption engenders a renewed focus on the subject. Comprised of 380 articles, it provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of energy. Not only does it address the expected scientific and technological areas such as engineering, physics, geology, and environmental science, but it also includes a strong social science component with history, economics, public policy, and sociology. Cleveland (director, Center for Energy and Environmental Studies, Boston Univ.) and over 400 contributors from academia, government, and industry provide authoritative information in the form of lengthy, well-organized articles that are accessible to undergraduates and researchers. Each article has definitions, cross-references, and suggested readings to aid the user. Extras include a glossary, an extensive chronology of energy-related developments, a small annotated bibliography, key international organizations, and a wide range of energy-related tables such as measurement and units, physical property data, and production and consumption figures. Bottom Line The material here is on a more advanced level than the the three-volume Macmillan Encyclopedia of Energy. Whereas Macmillan provides overviews of the major energy topics, the articles in Encyclopedia of Energy have greater breadth and depth. Both encyclopedias complement each other well because of the difference in scope and surprisingly small overlap in content. But Macmillan may be a more affordable choice for smaller public, high school, and undergraduate libraries, while the Encyclopedia of Energy is strongly recommended for academic and large public libraries.
An invaluable resource for all academics, researchers, professionals and students either working in or conducting research in the energy and related environmental fields.
