Antimony: Its history, chemistry, mineralogy, geology, by Ch'ung-yu Wang

By Ch'ung-yu Wang

A Metallurgical paintings in English through a chinese language writer is rare; yet lengthy place of abode in the United States, and in England and different elements of Europe, and masses research of English literature, have familiarised me with the language, and feature inspired me to make it the medium for providing my paintings to the English-speaking public: and that i wish to exhibit my due to Messrs Charles Griffin & Co. for the chance they've got afforded me of doing so.

Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers (Special Topics in Inorganic Chemistry)

A balanced and concise assurance of inorganic polymers Inorganic polymers include parts except carbon as a part of their vital spine constitution and are identified to convey a variety of composition and constitution. Emphasizing actual homes, chemical synthesis, and characterization of inorganic polymers, Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers provides helpful and informative insurance of the sphere.

Phase Transformations in Materials

For every kind of fabrics, part alterations convey universal phenomena and mechanisms, and sometimes flip a fabric, for instance metals, multiphase alloys, ceramics or composites, into its technological invaluable shape. The physics and thermodynamics of a metamorphosis from the forged to liquid kingdom or from one crystal shape to a different are accordingly crucial for growing high-performance fabrics.

Powder Metallurgy Data. Refractory, Hard and Intermetallic Materials

For plenty of purposes powder metallurgy (PM) is the one approach to economically produce so-called most unlikely fabrics e. g. homogenous tremendous grained immiscible fabrics, nanomaterials, hugely alloyed segregation loose software steels or nickel base alloys, functionally graded fabrics, bonded not easy fabrics or infrequent earth tough magnets, simply to identify few.

If powdered metallic antimony is added to a chlorate, it burns, forming SbCl5. It is colourless, and boils at 140° under the ordinary atmospheric pressure. Its specific density at 20° = 2-346. SCl4.
