Inorganic materials chemistry is a central theme in chemistry teaching and research, but it is poorly covered in the main inorganic textbooks. This primer fills the gap in the literature, and provides a comprehensive, inexpensive introduction that covers all the salient points required in an undergraduate course on solid materials. It also addresses the major experimental technique used in this area, powder X-ray diffraction. Topics covered include transition metal oxides, non-stoichiometry, zeolites, the chemistry of layer compounds, high temperature superconductors, and fullerides, and presents the synthesis of these compound types.

The updated second edition of the popular Inorganic Materials Chemistry Desk Reference remains a valuable resource in the preparation of solid-state inorganic materials by chemical processing techniques. It also expands upon new chemical precursors available to materials scientists, the applications of those materials, and existing or emerging topics where materials chemistry plays an important role, such as in microelectronics, surface science, and nanotechnology. This edition places additional emphasis on additives, characterization techniques and structure-property relationships, and materials classifications based on type and applications, including electronics, biomaterials, thin films, and coatings. Other new topics include combinatorial chemistry, nanostructures and technology, surface materials chemistry, biomimetic processing, and novel forms of carbon. The authors discuss the role of materials chemistry in micro- and nano-fabrication, self-assembly, scanning probe microscopy, and carbon fullerenes. The new edition adds forty black and white figures, over 200 new definitions, and 50% more new chemical precursors and their properties. With a new and improved reference format, Inorganic Materials Chemistry Desk Reference continues to be a constructive resource to specialists conducting research in materials chemistry.

Due to their use and importance in many fields, a great deal of research focuses on developing inorganic materials. For example, a computer contains many types of inorganic materials, including the glass in the display or a layer of the LCD screen, the metal wires, and semiconductor materials in the chips and other electronic components. Computers can even be powered by solar cells, which also include inorganic materials. Zeolites also belong to this class and are found in applications ranging from catalysts to cat litter. This third edition of the popular textbook contains 30% new and/or revised content to reflect the latest developments in this fast developing field. Written from the chemist's point of view, the well-known and experienced authors provide a thorough and pedagogical introduction, now including example real-life applications of the syntheses, as well as new sections on nanomaterials, templating methods and biomineralization. A valuable resource for advanced undergraduates as well as masters and graduate students in inorganic chemistry and materials science.

Intended as a textbook for courses involving preparative solid-state chemistry, this book offers clear and detailed descriptions on how to prepare a selection of inorganic materials that exhibit important optical, magnetic and electrical properties, on a laboratory scale. The text covers a wide range of preparative methods and can be read as separate, independent chapters or as a unified coherent body of work. Discussions of various chemical systems reveal how the properties of a material can often be influenced by modifications to the preparative procedure, and vice versa. References to mineralogy are made throughout the book since knowledge of naturally occurring inorganic substances is helpful in devising many of the syntheses and in characterizing the product materials. A set of questions at the end of each chapter helps to connect theory with practice, and an accompanying solutions manual is available to instructors. This book is also of appeal to postgraduate students, post-doctoral researchers and those working in industry requiring knowledge of solid-state synthesis.

Structural Chemistry of Inorganic Actinide Compounds is a collection of 13 reviews on structural and coordination chemistry of actinide compounds. Within the last decade, these compounds have attracted considerable attention because of their importance for radioactive waste management, catalysis, ion-exchange and absorption applications, etc. Synthetic and natural actinide compounds are also of great environmental concern as they form as a result of alteration of spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste under Earth surface conditions, during burn-up of nuclear fuel in reactors, represent oxidation products of uranium miles and mine tailings, etc. The actinide compounds are also of considerable interest to material scientists due to the unique electronic properties of actinides that give rise to interesting physical properties controlled by the structural architecture of respective compounds. The book provides both general overview and review of recent developments in the field, including such emergent topics as nanomaterials and nanoparticles and their relevance to the transfer of actinides under environmental conditions. * Covers over 2,000 actinide compounds including materials, minerals and coordination polymers * Summarizes recent achievements in the field * Some chapters reveal (secret) advances made by the Soviet Union during the 'Cold war'

"The book deals with the famous query by Richard Feynman, "What would the properties of materials be if we could really arrange the atoms (molecules) the way we want them?" Feynman also wondered: "What could we do with layered structures with just the right layers?" The state of the art in building laminar materials of different kinds for diverse applications is thoroughly covered in this book. After discussing the basic chemistry involved, The basic chemistry involved in the field and the techniques used for techniques are discussed, including: variable porosity; molecular and shape recognition; detection, separation and storage of small molecules; supramolecular chirality; chiral memory and recognition; simple and circularly polarized luminescence; photoactive materials; viii) drug and dye confinement. Applications in biocatalysis, drug delivery, and energy storage and recovery are discussed"--

Solid-state chemistry, a discipline that can be defined in general terms as the chemistry of solids for being solids and not liquids or gases, is today a well-established subject. Since its inception in the middle of the 20th century, solid-state chemistry has attained an important degree of maturity within the chemical sciences. In the same way that chemistry itself is considered a "central science, solid-state chemistry is central in its many relations to physics, in particular to solid-state physics--a much older discipline, started around the 20's of the same century--and also to materials science and engineering. There are few problems in materials science or engineering in which the preparation of the material itself is not a central issue and, more often than not, this will be a solid-state chemical problem. For these reasons, it is not surprising that in the technological development of the last century, solid-state chemistry has grown in importance. It is not only a synthesis science,it is also the science of structures, defects, stoichiometry, and physical chemical properties--electrical, magnetic, optical and thermal, to name a few. Most of these are explored in the volume, the fourth in a series from the Materials Research Society on solid-state chemistry of inorganic materials.
