Chemistry and Technology of Magnesia by Mark A. Shand

Book Description

A Complete Guide to Magnesia-From Mining to End Use Often relegated to footnote status in texts, magnesia is nevertheless a valuable substance widely used in applications ranging from wastewater treatment to catalysis. The Chemistry and Technology of Magnesia fills the long-standing gap in the literature with a comprehensive, one-stop reference to "all things magnesia." The book brings together the many strands of information on magnesium compounds, their production, testing and evaluation, technology, applications, and markets. Opening with an introductory history of the chemical, it covers the life cycle of magnesia, natural and synthetic production, and uses in different fields including the environmental, health, and agricultural industries. Readers will find the section on health and safety issues particularly relevant. Chapters include: The History of Magnesia Synthetic Magnesia Pulp Applications Environmental Applications Magnesia Cements Furnaces and Kilns Post Calcination Processing Other Magnesia Products Mining and Processing Magnesite The Physical and Chemical Properties of Magnesium Oxide Water and Wastewater Application for Magnesia Products Magnesia in Polymer Applications The Role of Magnesium in Animal, Plants, and Human Nutrition Magnesium Salts and Magnesium Metal The Formation and Occurrence of Magnesite Calcination of Magnesium Hydroxide and Carbonate Miscellaneous Magnesia Applications
