ABSTRACT In mineral processing engineering disciplines,
flotation, as a primary beneficiation method, is performed on the basis of
surface chemical properties of minerals and rocks. The surface chemistry of
minerals and rocks can be artificially changed to achieve minerals flotation
separation. Thus chemistry plays a very important role in mineral processing
engineering disciplines. Analysis shows that inorganic chemistry, organic
chemistry and physical chemistry are all required courses for undergraduate
students majoring in mineral processing engineering. Analytical chemistry and
further quantum chemistry for advanced talent training at the graduate
education level are necessary. Chemistry lays the foundation for realizing
resource use in efficiency, integration and cleanliness, and plays a
significant role in wastewater recycling, zero discharge and environment
protection. Emphasizing chemistry education and improving chemistry expertise
are an important guarantee for environment protection and sustainable development of
mineral resources exploitation and utilization.
