Overview

The essential introduction to the understanding of the structure of inorganic solids and materials. This revised and updated 2nd Edition looks at new developments and research results within Structural Inorganic Chemistry in a number of ways, special attention is paid to crystalline solids, elucidation and description of the spatial order of atoms within a chemical compound.  Structural principles of inorganic molecules and solids are described through traditional concepts, modern bond-theoretical theories, as well as taking symmetry as a leading principle.

Meet the Author

Ulrich Müller. Born in 1940 in Bogotá, Colombia. School attendance in Bogotá, then in Elizabeth, New Jersey, and finally in Fellbach, Germany. Studied chemistry at the Technische Hochschule in Stuttgart, Germany, obtaining the degree of Diplom-Chemiker in 1963. Work on the doctoral thesis in inorganic chemistry was performed in Stuttgart and at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, in the research groups of K. Dehnicke and K. S. Vorres, respectively. The doctor's degree in natural sciences (Dr. rer. nat.) was awarded by the Technische Hochschule Stuttgart in 1966. Subsequent post-doctoral work in crystallography and crystal structure determinations was performed in the research group of H. Bärnighausen at the Universität Karlsruhe, Germany. Appointed in 1972 as professor of inorganic chemistry at the Philipps-Universität Marburg, Germany, then from 1992 to 1999 at the Universität Kassel, Germany, and since 1999 again in Marburg. Helped installing a graduate school of chemistry as visiting professor at the Universidad de Costa Rica from 1975 to 1977. Courses in spectroscopic methods were repeatedly given at different universities in Costa Rica, Brazil and Chile. Main areas of scientific interest: synthetic inorganic chemistry, crystallography and crystal structure systematics, crystallographic group theory. Co-author of Chemie, a textbook for beginners, Schwingungsspektroskopie, a textbook about the application of vibrational spectroscopy, and of Schwingungsfrequenzen I and II (tables of characteristic molecular vibrational frequencies); co-author and co-editor of International Tables for Crystallography, Vol. A1.
