Pyrometallurgy is the process of thermal treatment of metallurgical ores to underwent physical and chemical transformations in the materials to recover valuable metals from them. Examples are oxides of Manganese, Fe, Chromium, Tin and copper. Processes that come under Pyrometallurgy are Refining, Roasting, Smelting and Calcining. The energy required to carry out the process is provided by exothermic reaction of the material, combustion and from electrical heat.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
