Ganguly, Jibamitra

Mixtures and minerals reactions - New York: Springer-Verlag, 1987 - xii, 291p. - Minerals and rocks 19 .

Table of contents:

1. Thermodynamic Functions of Solutions
2. Mixing Models and Activity-Composition Relations
3. Phase Separation in Solutions
4. Heterogeneous Chemical Reaction and Equilibrium
5. Thermodynamic Properties of Selected Mineral Solid Solutions
6. Exchange Equilibrium and Inter-Crystalline Fractionation
7. Atomic Ordering in Minerals
8. Estimation and Extrapolation of the Thermodynamic Properties of Minerals and Solid Solutions

Considerable progress has been made in our understanding of the physicochemical evolution of natural rocks through systematic analysis of the compositional properties and phase relations of their mineral assemblages. This book brings together concepts of classical thermodynamics, solution models, and atomic ordering and interactions that constitute a major basis of such analysis, with appropiate examples of application to subsolidus petrological problems. This book is written for an audience with a senior undergraduate level background in chemistry. Derivations of fundamental thermodynamic relations which are in need of reemphasis and clarification are presented.
