About this book

Knowledge of the basic interactions that take place between geological materials and different substances is the first step in understanding the effects of adsorption and other interfacial processes on the quality of rocks and soils. This volume provides comprehensive coverage of the thermodynamic aspects of the soil-liquid-interface system. The book examines the different processes at solid and liquid interfaces of soil and rock, emphasizing the importance of chemical species on these interactions. It discusses chemical reactions on surfaces and interfaces; examines the roles of these processes in environmental, colloidal, and geochemistry; and, explores the effects on agricultural, environmental, and industrial applications.


Components of Soil and Rock -- Solution Systems. Interfacial Processes in Geological Systems: Studies on Montmorillonite Model Substance. Interfacial Reactions at Rock and Soil Interfaces. Experimental Methods in Studying Interfacial Processes of Rocks and Soils.
