Course objectives
The subject offers comprehensive overview of mineral composition of basic technical materials so that the students should be able to work independently with the studied materials within their theses by means of the classic mineralogical methods.
  • 1) Main definitions. General and technical mineralogy. Systematic overview of technical minerals. 2) The role of mineralogy in present industry and science - mineralogy as the borderline branch between technical and natural sciences. Experimental mineralogy, technical mineralogy 3) Crystalochemistry and geochemistry of synthetic crystals. 4) Structure and microstructure of polycrystalic mineral raw materials. Technical evaluation of materials, genetic relations to initial raw materials. 5) Mineralogy of selected natural materials. Minerals and rocks metamorphosed in technical processes. Mineralogy of industrial and waste materials. 6) Minerals and rocks as the raw materials and final products i. Natural materials ii. Precious and semi-precious stones iii. Zeolites iv. Luminofries v. Diamond and other natural semiconductors 7) Problems of crystalochemical homogeneity of natural and artificial crystals. Essential processes and creation of phases. i. Role of electrons in crystalline structures ii. Non-metallic crystals iii. Crystals of metals and semi-metals 8) Mineralogy of ceramic raw materials: Smelted and sintered ceramic products, nanoceramics. 9) Non-metallic monocrystals 10) Minaralogical analysis and interpretation of industrial processes 11) Waste management - synthesis of zeolites 12) Technical mineralogy of industrial waste - service for waste management
