Description:This title takes an interdisciplinary approach to the central role of solubility in pathological biomineralisation, ranging from traditional thermodynamics and kinetics to unusual concepts such as the PILP process.The scientific background and expertise of the contributors, ranges accordingly from solubility modelling and database development, renal stone and bone implant research, Mssbauer spectroscopy and structural chemistry to biochemistry andcrystallisation. The chapters all have a quantitative, physico-chemical component rather than giving purely phenomenological descriptions.The contributors deal with aspects and concepts that have not previously been common in the study of pathological biomineralisation processes.
