What do chalk, limestone and marble have in common? They are all composed of calcium carbonate with the chemical formula CaCO3. The diversity of uses of this mineral are just as multifarious as the diversity of its compounds encountered in nature. +Calcium Carbonate - From the Cretaceous Period into the 21st Century+ ((kursiv)) presents all the facets of this white mineral, thereby uniting the entire world of calcium carbonate within its covers - its geology, art history, extraction and processing and, self-evidently, its uses in modern industry.

This makes the book an invaluable companion in the day-to-day work of the specialist in industry and research, and it gives interested layman acces to the complex interdependencies of this fascinating mineral.
