For scientists, students, and engineers, the late Walsh, who was a scientist and technologist in the beryllium industry, and Vidal et al. bring together 21 chapters by contributors working in industry, academia, and national laboratories, in a volume on the chemistry and chemical and metallurgical processing of beryllium. They introduce what beryllium is and relate its history, chemical and physical properties, mineralogy, preferred sources, and global source of ore bodies. They also cover the identification and specifics of the industrial metallurgical processes used to form oxide from the ore and then metal from the oxide, the special features of beryllium chemistry, compounds of industrial interest, manufacturing processes, alloy content and application, physical metallurgy, environmental degradation, and health and work safety issues.
