Chemistry pioneer sets her sites on rare earth oxides

Renowned chemist, geochemist and materials scientist Alexandra Navrotsky has become a pioneer in her field over the last 50 years. She even has a mineral named after her – Navrotskyite. With support from the National Science Foundation, Navrotsky and her team at University of California, Davis (moving to Arizona State University) have invented an instrument to study high temperature materials, including rare earth oxides.
