Aims and Scope
Due to their physical and chemical properties minerals often show a high potential for technical, environmental or medical applications. This work highlights today's research on ecologically outstanding minerals as e.g. garnets used for energy storage, zeolites for water purification, shape memory alloys NiTi or zirconia for medical implant applications.
