Modern metallurgy is a fascinating field of research, full of discoveries, commercial opportunities and industrial utility. Encyclopedia of Materials: Metals and Alloys is a new, multidisciplinary reference work offering a comprehensive coverage of this exciting area, and consolidating research activities in all experimental and theoretical aspects of metallic materials, intermetallic compounds, alloys, blends and composites. Key focus is on those aspects of the science of metals concerned with their manufacturing, processing and fabrication, the relationship between the macro/micro/nanostructures and properties (mechanical, chemical, electrical, electrochemical, magnetic and optical), industrial application, surface modification and functionalization of metals – and, importantly, resource and supply chain issues, and life-cycle and sustainability practices.

This title provides users with a single and unique reference source, incorporating elements from many different disciplines. An invaluable addition to any reference library of engineers, chemists and physicists, both from industry and academia.

Key Features

  • Comprehensive and accessible - offers users a "one stop" comprehensive resource, providing contemporary reviews of current metallurgy research, and an insight into the future direction of the field
  • Clearly structured - meticulously organized, chapters are split into 13 sections on key topics and clearly cross-referenced to allow students, researchers, and professionals to find relevant information quickly and easily
  • Multidisciplinary - chapters written by academics and practitioners from various fields and regions ensure that the knowledge within is easily understood by, and applicable to, a large audience
  • Contemporary content - emphasis is given to clean energy, green transport, healthcare and next-generation manufacturing


Academic and industrial researchers working in the following areas: energy, renewables, aeronautics, space, security, automotive, railways, shipping, electrical equipment, chemical engineering, machinery, factory tooling, scientific equipment, construction, packaging, computing, sensors, robotics, consumer electronics and healthcare
