SESSION 10: Minerals for Environmental and Medical Application

In the last decade, the basic characteristics of minerals such as surface adsorption, crystallographic defects, ionic and cationic exchange capacities, physical and chemical properties at nanometre scale as well as mineralogical-biological interactions have been object of a great scientific interest aimed to their application both for medical uses and a safer environment. Clay minerals and zeolites, for instance, have been investigated as drug carriers, antimicrobial agents, natural sieving for radionuclides and heavy metals, and so on. This session will pinpoint the recent research on minerals and synthetic crystalline as well as proto-crystalline materials, including geopolymers, for environmental and medical applications- It will provide a forum to stimulate and promote a discussion both on their effects upon human health and the role they play in toxic element immobilization and radioactive waste management
