This book contains the proceedings of the "Second International Conference on Ultrastructure Processing of Ceramics, Glasses and Composites", held from February 25 to March 1 1985 in Palm Coast, Florida. It emphasizes the basic chemistry underlying the rapidly growing field of processing ceramics, glasses and composites, and represents a synthesis of work done during the last 3 years. The book also includes new areas of computer aided processing, molecular calculations of ceramic processing reactions and chemical control of surface films.
