Summary Our planet is largely composed of oxides. Almost every material that we humans encounter or use is derived from the oxide building blocks that comprise the Earth's crust. Water is by far the most abundant and useful liquid on the planet. Chemical reactions between water and oxides are the most prevalent reactions on the surface of the earth. Throughout history, people have exploited oxide-water reactions to build shelters, make tools, and in modern times develop some of our most advanced technologies. The Aqueous Chemistry of Oxides represents the first single-volume text that encapsulates all of the critical issues associated with how oxide materials interact with aqueous solutions. It serves as a central reference for scientific disciplines, including chemistry, geology, materials science, and environmental science. The text is organized to encompass the chemical properties of oxides, oxide synthesis in water, technological reactions, and oxide-water reactions in all of the Earth's major environments. The book highlights a wide range of scientific literature in a central location, allowing readers and scholars to access a broad range of specialized research topics.
