Metals and Alloys continues the series of graduate textbooks on Industrial Chemistry by Mark A. Benvenuto. It shows the essential industrial applications, processes and chemistry background for the extraction of metals, as well as the production and applications of alloys. The book discusses how large scale and minor processes affect every-day life, challenges in prevention and removal of waste by-products and illustrates selected chemical processes for which efforts have been made to improve and "green" industrial production of metals and alloys.
Sources for metals are sorted by metal and alloy and backed by basic chemical background information and process set up. Overviews on worldwide ore distribution, refined metal and alloy production numbers are another focus of the book.
Discusses sources, key processes and applications.
Connects what students learn in class to real, large-scale metals chemistry that makes modern life possible.
Intended for students, graduate students and beginners in the fiield of Chemistry, Chemical Process Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Materials Science.

"[...] graduate students in materials science as well as first year chemical students are likely to find this book worth reading. I recommend this book for people who want to have a rapid overview of metals or for teachers who want to prepare an introduction to metallurgy."
