Chemical and Physical Bonding
Electron Pair Orbitals. A practical understanding of ceramic processing requires some knowledge of chemical bonding. Weak bonds, strong bonds, and some bond types not ordinarily emphasized in first year chemistry courses are all involved in a typical ceramic process, even for an old method such as the slip casting of ball clay. An even deeper level of knowledge will be required in order to understand the functions (and occasional malfunctions) of those organic additives that are likely to be used in the future.
