Mineral Dressing


The water-structural aspects of evolution of interphase nanoformations are considered. Monitoring the state of nanoformations provides the control of hydrophobic interaction and flotation macroprocesses.

Flotation nanoassociates hydrophobic interactions wetting ability contrast pre-hypersonic activation of inter-particulate interactions
