Synthesis of Inorganic Materials

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Dec 4, 2019 - Science - 424 pages
Introduces readers to the field of inorganic materials, while emphasizing synthesis and modification techniques

Written from the chemist's point of view, this newly updated and completely revised fourth edition of Synthesis of Inorganic Materials provides a thorough and pedagogical introduction to the exciting and fast developing field of inorganic materials and features all of the latest developments. New to this edition is a chapter on self-assembly and self-organization, as well as all-new content on: demixing of glasses, non-classical crystallization, precursor chemistry, citrate-gel and Pechini liquid mix methods, ice-templating, and materials with hierarchical porosity.

Synthesis of Inorganic Materials, 4th Edition features chapters covering: solid-state reactions; formation of solids from the gas phase; formation of solids from solutions and melts; preparation and modification of inorganic polymers; self-assembly and self-organization; templated materials; and nanostructured materials. There is also an extensive glossary to help bridge the gap between chemistry, solid state physics and materials science. In addition, a selection of books and review articles is provided at the end of each chapter as a starting point for more in-depth reading.

-Gives the students a thorough overview of the fundamentals and the wide variety of different inorganic materials with applications in research as well as in industry
-Every chapter is updated with new content
-Includes a completely new chapter covering self-assembly and self-organization
-Written by well-known and experienced authors who follow an intuitive and pedagogical approach

Synthesis of Inorganic Materials, 4th Edition is a valuable resource for advanced undergraduate students as well as masters and graduate students of inorganic chemistry and materials science.

About the author (2019)

Ulrich Schubert, PhD, has been Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the Institute of Materials Chemistry, Vienna University of Technology, since 1994. His research interests are centered around application-oriented fundamental research on sol-gel processes and inorganic-organic hybrid materials.

Nicola Hï¿1⁄2sing, PhD, was appointed Professor of Materials Chemistry at the Paris-Lodron University of Salzburg, Austria in 2010. Her research interests focus on the liquid phase synthesis of porous materials, inorganic-organic hybrid materials and mesoscopically organized systems, especially with respect to synthesis-structure-property relations.
