About this Textbook

This updated, second edition retains its classroom-tested treatment of physical chemistry of metallurgical topics, such as roasting of sulfide minerals, matte smelting, converting, structure, properties and theories of slag, reduction of oxides and reduction smelting, interfacial phenomena, steelmaking, secondary steelmaking, role of halides in extraction of metals, refining, hydrometallurgy and electrometallurgy, and adds new data in worked-out examples as well as up-to-date references to the literature. The book further explains the physical chemistry of various metallurgical topics, steps involved in extraction of metals, such as roasting, matte smelting/converting, reduction smelting, steelmaking reactions, deoxidation, stainless   steelmaking, vacuum degassing, refining, leaching, chemical precipitation, ion exchange, solvent extraction, cementation, gaseous reduction and electrowinning. Each topic is illustrated with appropriate examples of applications of the technique in extraction of some common, reactive, rare, or refractory metal together with worked out problems explaining the principle of the operation. The problems require imagination and critical analyses and also encourage readers for creative application of thermodynamic data in metal extraction.

About the authors

After obtaining Master degree in Metallurgical Engineering, Shamsuddin joined the Department of Metallurgical Engineering, Banaras Hindu University as a Lecturer in 1970 and was subsequently promoted to the post of Reader and Professor in 1979 and 1987, respectively. He was awarded PhD in 1974 and spent three years (1978 -  1981) in the United States, one year each at the University of Chicago, University of Utah, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His field of specialization has been Metallurgical Thermodynamics and Chemical-Extractive Metallurgy. He has conducted extensive studies on thermodynamic properties of semiconducting intermetallics, binary and ternary alloy systems. In extractive metallurgy area he has been involved in studies on roasting, leaching and sulfide-oxide interactions. Thermodynamic data published by him are widely referred.  A few measures of the recognition of his outstanding contributions include the Pandya Medal, INSA Young Scientist Award, Visiting Associate Professor at MIT, Best Metallurgists Award: Government of India, and MRSI Medal. After retirement from the faculty in June 2010, he has concentrated his efforts on publishing books on Chemical-Extractive Metallurgy and Thermodynamics, based on his 50 years of academic experiences in these fields.
