Periodic Tales: A Cultural History of the Elements, from Arsenic to Zinc

just like the alphabet, the calendar, or the zodiac, the periodic desk of the chemical parts has an everlasting position in our mind's eye. yet other than the handful of universal ones (iron, carbon, copper, gold), the weather themselves stay wrapped in secret. we don't be aware of what such a lot of them appear like, how they exist in nature, how they obtained their names, or of what use they're to us. Unlocking their incredible secrets and techniques and colourful pasts, Periodic stories is a passionate trip via mines and artists’ studios, to factories and cathedrals, into the woods and to the ocean to find the genuine tales of those attention-grabbing yet mysterious development blocks of the universe.

The Lady Anatomist: The Life and Work of Anna Morandi Manzolini

Anna Morandi Manzolini (1714-74), a girl artist and scientist, surmounted meager origins and constrained formal schooling to turn into the most acclaimed anatomical sculptors of the Enlightenment. the girl Anatomist tells the tale of her arresting lifestyles and instances, in mild of the intertwined histories of technology, gender, and artwork that complex her upward thrust to popularity within the eighteenth century.

Mineralogy Zeolite tuffs are rocks which contain, besides zeolites, various other crystalline or amorphous phases. One parameter that is especially important in determining the nature of both the formed zeolites and the secondary phases is the silicon content of the original rock. More siliceous rocks gave rise, in fact, to siliceous zeolites, such as clinoptilolite, ferrierite and mordenite, whereas intermediate-silica materials led to the formation of the less siliceous analcime, chabazite and phillipsite.

2. Physical-mechanical properties The finely crystalline zeolitic matrix of tuffs cements the other non zeolitic particles and is responsible for the overall mechanical properties of the material. The compactness and the consequent physical-mechanical properties are somewhat variable as they are function of various parameters, such as mineral composition, tuff genesis, and original conditions of the deposit, especially as regards looseness of the parent material, grain size distribution, and others.

Zeolite genesis Zeolite formation in nature follows pathways which are familiar in laboratory synthesis. Zeolite nucleation, crystallisation and crystal growth take place as a result of slow 20 to fast cooling of warm to hot magmas, which are basic, oversaturated in silicate and aluminate species and contain alkaline and/or alkali-earth cations.
