Gold: Science and Applications by Christopher Corti,Richard Holliday

By Christopher Corti,Richard Holliday

Gold is utilized in a variety of business and clinical functions and bills for over 10 percentage of the once a year call for for steel, worthy billions of greenbacks each year. whereas a lot has been written in regards to the mystique and alternate of gold, little or no has been written concerning the technology and know-how within which it really is concerned. Edited by means of revered professionals from the realm Gold Council, Gold: technology and Applications offers researchers with the definitive guide at the present technological know-how and functions of this helpful and gorgeous valuable metal.

Packed with contributions from the world’s major specialists, this quantity brings in authoritative details from a couple of sciences, together with chemistry, physics, nanotechnology and metallurgy. The ebook offers a myriad of functions, starting from electronics to drugs and optics. A finished review bankruptcy presents historic views of the point and every bankruptcy describes power extra makes use of, together with functions presently being developed.
