Addressing the latest developments in the area of crystal growth, dissolution, and inhibition, the papers apply their research to the development of new inhibitors to control scaling problems in: industrial water treatment, water purification, and medical and dental applications. The discussions also provide an introduction to the type and severity of scaling problems in biological systems, and specialized analytical techniques for further research. Some of the papers were not presented at the August symposium, but have been included in these proceedings. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
