Since ancient times, people have used borates to make everything from glass to laundry detergent. Because these minerals have such a variety of uses, their availability often determined the fate of whole economies. Today borates are essential in the production of an array of products, including boric acid, enamel, ceramics, and high-tech superconductors. This comprehensive reference is the first to cover industrially important borates, from deposits, through chemistry, mining, processing, and applications. It features modern theories on the origin of borate deposits, their molecular structure and detailed descriptions of the world's borate deposits. It also describes the fascinating history of the discovery and development of borate deposits with anecdotes of how resourceful operators overcame obstacles in obtaining their minerals.
