This book brings together the latest developments in chemically bonded phosphate ceramics (CBPCs), including several novel ceramics, from US Federal Laboratories such as  Argonne, Oak Ridge, and Brookhaven National Laboratories, as well as Russian and Ukrainian nuclear institutes. Coupled with further advances in their use as biomaterials, these materials have found uses in diverse fields in recent years. Applications range from advanced structural materials to corrosion and fire protection coatings, oil-well cements, stabilization and encapsulation of hazardous and radioactive waste, nuclear radiation shielding materials, and products designed for safe storage of nuclear materials. Such developments call for a single source to cover their science and applications. This book is a unique and comprehensive source to fulfil that need. In the second edition, the author covers the latest developments in nuclear waste containment and introduces new products and applications in areas such as biomedical implants, cements and coatings used in oil-well and other petrochemical applications, and flame-retardant anti-corrosion coatings.
  • Explores the key applications of CBPCs including nuclear waste storage, oil-well cements, anticorrosion coatings and biomedical implants
  • Demystifies the chemistry, processes and production methods of CBPCs
  • Draws on 40 years of developments and applications in the field, including the latest developments from USA, Europe, Ukraine, Russia, China and India

Wagh, Arun S.
Dr. Arun S. Wagh worked as a full time scientist in Argonne National Laboratory and is currently an adviser on nuclear materials for Argonne. His main research project concerns development of chemically bonded phosphate ceramics for the U.S. Department of Energy for immobilization of radioactive waste and also as nuclear shielding materials. In these efforts he collaborated with several Russian nuclear centers including the Russian Academy of Sciences and P.R. Mayak. Recently, he also collaborated with Kharkov Institute of Physics Technology in Ukraine perfecting chemically bonded phosphate ceramics for nuclear applications. While leading these projects, he found a wide range of commercial applications of these materials. He has received several awards for his work including two R & D awards, two Federal Laboratories Consortium awwards, Scientist of the Year award by Chicago Intellectual Properties Lawyers' Association, and Agronne's Pacesetter Award. He is a fellow of American Ceramic Society. To promote commercial applications, currently he has formed his company, Inorganic Polymer Solutions, Inc., and is advising various industries.
