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 per cent 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. Read less
This new edition provides more complete coverage of this important area of inorganic chemistry. It is a valuable resource for practicing chemists." --CHOICE, July 2005
