|The book is a good
starting-point for everyone interested in crystal growing in inorganic
silicate gels. Although it is limited to sodiummetasilicate-gels (more or
less ignoring any other gelling media), it provides the reader with very
useful hints and applications of this special crystal growing technique.
Starting with the basics of the method, the reader is introduced to the mechanism
and "background" of the chemical and physical properties of the
gels as well as the crystals grown in such gels
First book ever printed on growing crystals in a gel medium provides thorough description of the procedure, its history and future potential, and offers an extensive course of study on the physical and chemical processes involved.
