About this book

Summarises the state-of-the-art in the study of mineral surfaces and some of the key applications of surface science in mineralogy and mineral chemistry.

The scope and the impact of the subject is clearly broad. This book successfully deals with it at an introductory level and should appeal to a wide readership ... I recommend it to you. - Geoscientist; This splendid book...provides an excellent introduction to a developing and important subject. The authors and publishers should feel proud of this contribution to the literature... - Mineralogical Magazine.
