About this book


Molten salts are investigated by very diverse techniques and for differ­ ing purposes, and the results are reported in widely scattered journals. There is a need to keep investigators aware of progress in other specialties and to provide students with source and background material. Advances in Molten Salt Chemistry hopes to fill these needs by providing reviews of recent progress presented, insofar as is reasonable, with enough background material and commentary to be comprehensible to a nonspecialist. We prefer a discussion of underlying principles, to the extent that they are known, and we encourage authors to comment critically on the reliability of data, the utility of models, and the cogency of ideas and theories. We take a broad vie~ of the suitability of topics for inclusion in this series. Both fundamental and technological advances have a place here, as do studies on materials related to molten salts (like liquid silicates, very concentrated aqueous solutions, solutions of salts in liquid metals, and solid electrolytes). We intend this series to serve the needs of those who investigate or use molten salts. We welcome suggestions of topics and suitable authors, as well as comments on the strengths and shortcomings of what is published.
