Bonding Structure and Solid State Chemistry

Author: Formerly Head of Chemical Physics Mark Ladd
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780198729952
Release Date: 2016-01-28
Genre:

This book provides the reader with an introductory study in Bonding, Structure and Solid State Chemistry, starting from first principles. It is based on lecture courses given over several years, but is not directed at any particular degree course. Thus, it will find a place in all three-year degree courses in chemistry and in those subjects for which chemistry forms a significant part. It will also prepare readers for more intensive study in the title topics.Pre-knowledge is assumed in mathematics and physical sciences at about A-level standard, and additional mathematical and other topics are presented where necessary as appendices, so as not to disturb theflow of the main text.

Chemical Bonding in Solids

Author: Jeremy K. Burdett
Publisher: Oxford University Press on Demand
ISBN: 0195089928
Release Date: 1995
Genre: Science

Chemical Bonding in Solids examines how atoms in solids are bound together and how this determines the structure and properties of materials. Over the years, diverse concepts have come from many areas of chemistry, physics, and materials science, but often these ideas have remained largely within the area where they originated. One of the goals of this text is to bring some of these ideas together and show how a broader picture exists once some of the prejudices which isolate one area from another are removed. This book will be ideal for students taking courses in solid state chemistry, materials chemistry, and solid state physics.

Solids and Surfaces

Author: Roald Hoffmann
Publisher: Wiley-VCH
ISBN: 0471187100
Release Date: 1989-01-13
Genre: Science

This unique book shows how chemistry and physics come together in the solid state and on surfaces. Using a lively, graphic, descriptive approach, it teaches chemists the language that is necessary to understand the electronic structure of extended systems. And, at the same time, it demonstrates how a chemical, frontier-orbital, approach to solid state and surface bonding and reactivity may be constructed. The book begins with the language of crystal orbitals, band structures and densities of states. The tools for moving back from the highly delocalized orbitals of the solid are then built up in a transparent manner; they include decompositions of the densities of states and crystal orbital overlap populations. Using these tools, the book shapes a meeting ground between detailed quantum mechanical calculations and a chemical frontier orbital perspec- tive. Applications include a general picture of chemisorption, bond-breaking and making in the solid state, bonding in metals, the electronic structure of selected conducting and supercon- ducting structures, dissociation, migration and coupling on surfaces and the forces controlling deformation of extended systems.

Genre: Science

Structure and Bonding in Crystals, Volume II discusses the factors determining crystal structure. This book examines the principles of structure and bonding in complex solids. Divided into 13 parts, this volume begins with an overview of the development of atomic pseudopotentials and the discovery that they could be applied directly to atoms in crystals. This book then provides an understanding of other relevant topics, including ionic radii, bond strength, and bond length. Other chapters focus on the problems of classifying complex solids and describe the relationship between their structures. This text also describes the alloy structure to help know how compounds react or transform. This book further explores the geometrical relationships between different structure types in crystals. The final chapter deals with the contribution of Mooser and Pearson in the study of energy-band theory and chemical bonding. Solid-state physicists and chemists, geophysicists, metallurgists, and ceramists will find this book extremely useful.

Advances in Solid State Physics

Genre: Science

The 2002 Spring Meeting of the "Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft" was held in Regensburg from March 25th to 29th, 2002. The number of conference attendees has remained remarkably stable at about 2800, despite the decreas ing number of German PhD students. This can be taken as an indication that the program of the meeting was very attractive. The present volume of the "Advances in Solid State Physics" contains the written versions of most of the invited talks, also those presented as part of the Symposia. Most of these Symposia were organized by several divisions in collaboration and they covered fascinating selection of topics of current interest. I trust that the book reflects this year's status of the field in Germany. In particular, one notes a slight change in paradigms: from quantum dots and wires to spin transport and soft matter systems in the broadest sense. This seems to reflect the present general trend in physics. Nevertheless, a large portion of the invited papers as well as the discussions at the meeting concentrated on nanostrnctured matter.
