Scientific Sleuthing – Chemical Discoveries made in New Zealand, has 16 stories of how NZ scientists successfully solved problems:

The cause of toxic honey ~ uses for our unique flora and fauna ~ paints that can withstand our harsh and temperamental climate ~ seeking treatments for cancer ~ developing new processes ~ discovering compounds and materials that perform in ways that earlier generations could not have imagined.

This is a book about New Zealand’s development, and about history being made right here, right now.

Chemical Processes in New Zealand is now available online for downloading. This second edition (1998) of our publication Chemical Processes in New Zealand is now out of print, but is still the most comprehensive account of the practice of chemistry in New Zealand. The book contains 17 sections with self-explanatory headings, and various numbers of articles (101 in all) under each heading.
Bauxite to Alumina: the Bayer Process is an introductory text on the refining of bauxite ore to alumina as the feedstock for aluminium production.

He has put together a primer on the alumina refining (Bayer) process which can be used by educators at various levels from high school to university and even as an introduction for potential employees in the alumina/aluminium industry. He has kindly made this work available free of charge.
