Overview

This book discusses a number of topics that are pertinent to the design of new inorganic materials but are typically not covered in standard solid-state chemistry books. The authors start with an introduction to structure at the mesoscopic level and progress to smaller-length scales. Next, detailed consideration is given to both phenomenological and atomistic-level descriptions of transport properties, the metal-nonmetal transition, magnetic and dielectric properties, optical properties, and mechanical properties. Finally, the authors present introductions to phase equilibria, synthesis, and nanomaterials.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…very insightful and would serve as a text for graduate students in physics, chemistry, or materials sciences. Researchers in these fields would benefit by owning this book." (Materials and Manufacturing Processes, February 2006)

"…an excellent resource for libraries supporting programs in chemistry, materials science, and solid-state science. It can also be an effective resource for senior undergraduate and gradate course work." (CHOICE, October 2005)
