About the book

Both from the practical and from the academic point of view, zeolites are a remarkable class of nature and synthetic minerals. These “clever” hydrated porous aluminosilicates composed of the three most abundant elements in the lithosphere have found widespread industrial application as highly active catalysts, sorbents, and ion exchanges. They fascinate attraction the scientists because their well-defined geometry involving regular systems of intracrystalline changes and cavities with high total surface area and considerable void volume when dehydrated makes them ideal model systems in several areas of chemistry, surface physics and engineering.

Worldwide application received a direction related with synthesis of zeolite-like matrices for chemical binding of radioactive nucleids, heavy metals and other toxic and hazardous substances, as well as production of materials with specialty properties.

The book has been written by researchers and experts in the field and dedicated to graduate students, researchers and practicing engineers in the related fields.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
