Volume 2 covers major areas of inorganic materials and some related general topics, e.g., catalysis, geochemistry, and the preservation of art. The chapters are written by established practitioners in the field with the intent of presenting a sampling of the how thermoanalytical and calorimetric methods have contributed to progress in their respective areas. The chapters are not intended as exhaustive reviews of the topics, but rather, to illustrate to the readers what has been achieved and to encourage them to consider extending these applications further into their domains of interest.
- Provides an appreciation for how thermal methods can be applied to inorganic materials and processes.
- Provides an insight into the versatility of thermal methods.
- Shares the experiences of experts in a variety of different fields.
