Overview

This volume of the Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earth adds four chapters to the series which focus on stunning compounds and unusual spectroscopic methods, describing a mix of experimental and theoretical data. It opens with a review (Chapter 244) on magnetic circular dichroism (MCD), a very informative spectroscopy, although not yet widespread. The following chapters illustrate the state of the art in subjects as varied as molecular lanthanide clusters, the synthesis of which still relies on random self-organization (Chapter 245), low-valence organometallic compounds which were long thought to be too unstable to be isolated (Chapter 246), and lanthanide and actinide polynuclear helicates in which organic ligand strands wrap helically by self-assembly around metal centers (Chapter 247). Each chapter also discusses present and potential applications of the technique or compounds reviewed.

Meet the Author

Professor J-C.G. Bünzli is a physical-inorganic and analytical chemist by training and an active researcher in the field of co-ordination and supramolecular chemistry of rare-earth ions. His research focuses mainly on designing self-assembled functional edifices containing rare-earth ions and with predetermined photophysical and/or magnetic properties.

Professor V.K. Pecharsky is an active researcher in the field of structure-physical property relationships of rare earth-based intermetallic compounds. He co-authored over 250 papers published in peer reviewed journals and as chapters in books, holds 10 patents, mostly related to preparation and processing rare earth-based alloys.
