The year 2005 marked the 100th anniversary of the US patent award that prescribed the use of air bubbles for flotation. Commemorating that anniversary, this book/CD-ROM package details the current state of research and practice in mineral froth flotation. International contributors from various disciplines examine facets of flotation including historical aspects, fundamentals, chemistry, flotation cells, modeling and simulation, and flotation plant practice. Some specific areas covered include flotation thermodynamics, flotation reagents, mechanical froth flotation cells, and sulfide and nonsulfide minerals. The companion CD-ROM contains presentations from the June 2005 Centenary of Flotation Symposium managed by the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy. Fuerstenau teaches materials science and engineering at the University of Nevada. The book is for industry professionals, researchers, and graduate students.
