Dr. Zhorro Nikolov, Director of the Materials Characterization Facility and Research Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, and colleagues recently published the article "Water Structure and its Influence on the Flotation of Carbonate and Bicarbonate Salts” in the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, vol. 314, (2007) pp. 545-551.
The paper describes studies of water structure in concentrated salt solutions relevant to the flotation separation of valuable minerals in the chemical and metallurgical industry. The Journal of Colloid and Interface Science is a premier journal which publishes original research on fundamental principles of colloid and interface science and applications of these principles in chemistry, chemical engineering, physics, materials science and related fields.
