Overview

Praise for the First Edition:

"Very useful for researchers in solid-state chemistry and as a textbook of advanced inorganic chemistry for PhD students." -Advanced Materials.

This book provides unified coverage of the structure, properties, and synthesis of transition metal oxides. Written by two world-class scientists, it offers both an excellent window on modern solid-state chemistry and a gateway to understanding the behavior of inorganic solids.

Scientists and advanced students in inorganic and solid-state chemistry, materials science, ceramics, and condensed matter science will welcome this updated Second Edition, which features new or expanded material on:

• Oxyanion derivatives of cuprates, mercury cuprates, ladder compounds, and new oxide systems

• Giant magnetoresistance, superconductivity, and nonlinear materials

• Recently developed synthetic strategies and examples, including soft chemistry routes

Plus:

• Hundreds of illustrations

• Helpful references.
