The text has been prepared primarily for use by students studying ferrous extraction and refining operations, the research worker engaged in obtaining fundamental information in this field and the process metallurgist who wishes to apply the rapidly developing theoretical treatment to the process he is operating. To meet individual requirements the text is divided into four parts. It contains an explanation of those aspects of chemical thermodynamics, kinetic theory and the structure and properties of liquid slags which are subsequently applied to the extraction and refining processes in the remainder of the book. Thermodynamic theory is covered in sufficient detail to meet the needs of those process metallurgists with only a limited knowledge of the subject and for use in connection with lecture courses dealing with the application of chemical thermodynamics to metallurgical problems. Worked examples are given to illustrate the evaluation and application of the thermodynamic relations. The mathematical treatment has been simplified so far as possible without undue approximations.
