Some three years ago a book under the above title was published in Russian and briefly reviewed in this journal (Platinum Metals Rev., 1976, 20, (3), 99). An English version, revised from the earlier edition and translated by I. V. Savin, is now available.
The volume is again contributed by four leading workers in the laboratories of the A. A. Baikov Institute of Metallurgy of the U.S.S.R. Academy of Sciences and deals fully with the physical metallurgy and metal physics of the platinum metals, with a number of tables of reference data of use to industrial users and research workers.
A number of additional references have also been included in this second edition.
