Item description for Indium by Ulrich Schwarz-Schampera...
The book reviews the geological, mineralogical, geochemical and petrological characteristics of indium-bearing ore deposits. Furthermore it develops a general metallogenic concept for indium in identifying the essential enrichment processes and their economic significance. It represents the first comprehensive study on the metallogeny of indium and covers economic aspects including production and use. Careful geological and mineralogical descriptions are given for representative examples of different deposit types with most significant characteristics being summarized at the end of each chapter.

This book would be helpful for any project in inorganic chemistry. Indium has many medicinal and industrial/petro-chemical utilizations. For instance, it is used in the manufacture of control rods. It was discovered spectroscopically in the mid 1860s by Heronymus Richter . It melts at 157 C and boils at 2080 C with an atomic wt of 114.82. It is rarely , if ever, found in free form. Typically, Indium is bound to sulfur according to In S3. It may be bound to zinc (zn) blendes, tungsten, tin and iron ores. It may be utilized in conjunction with bearing alloys, semi-conductors and medicinally. Specifically, Indium helps the body absorb and use more of the other trace minerals . It is known that the levels of copper and manganese in the kidneys are in direct proportion to the level of Indium. Generally, Indium exists in small amounts. It is insoluble and virtually non-existent in the food chain. To be of use as a nutrient, Indium must be bound to a sulfate to be water-soluble. Indium is being investigated for its positive role in reducing cancerous tumors. Its positive effects are also seen in pain management, inflammatory disease management & diabetes. Dietary supplementation is found in the Indium-sulfate liquid drop method of ingestion. This book would be perfect for a class project in chemistry at virtually every level in academe. The book has applications throughout industry, academe and medicine. The subject matter of the research contained in this work would require a considerable effort of time and expense to replicate. For this reason, the work has a unique value to a wide constituency of people in the scientific community.
