Study of water and steam chemistry transcends the traditional barriers between chemistry, engineering and physics. On account of its multi-disciplinary nature, the study of water chemistry has become technologically significant. This book is an attempt to bring to the attention of academic and professional chemists, various facets of water chemistry. It blends basic and applied knowledge in this field. The subject matter covered includes properties of water at elevated temperatures, the characteristics of natural and industrial cooling waters as well as purifications by ion exchange and reverse osmosis. Several chapters are devoted to water and steam chemistry in thermal and nuclear power stations and in the utilisation of geothermal energy. Effluent treatment and water conservation have been dealt with briefly to provide a better and comprehensive study of the subject.
