This proven, sophomore-level text introduces the basics of coordination, solid-state, and descriptive main-group chemistry in a uniquely accessible manner, featuring a less is more approach. This approach allows you to present concepts and applications that you find particularly important and fascinating. Consistent with the less is more philosophy, the book does not review topics covered in introductory courses, but rather moves directly into topics central to inorganic chemistry. Written in a conversational prose style that is enjoyable and easy to understand, this book presents not only the basic theories and methods of inorganic chemistry (in three self-standing sections), but also a great deal of the history and applications of the discipline. The new edition features new art, more diversified applications, and a new icon system. And to better help students understand how the seemingly disparate topics of the periodical table connect, the book offers revised coverage of the author's Network of Interconnected Ideas on new full color endpapers, as well as on a convenient tear-out card. The author's presentation does not assume prerequisites of organic or physical chemistry.

Due to their use and importance in many fields, a great deal of research focuses on developing inorganic materials. For example, a computer contains many types of inorganic materials, including the glass in the display or a layer of the LCD screen, the metal wires, and semiconductor materials in the chips and other electronic components. Computers can even be powered by solar cells, which also include inorganic materials. Zeolites also belong to this class and are found in applications ranging from catalysts to cat litter. This third edition of the popular textbook contains 30% new and/or revised content to reflect the latest developments in this fast developing field. Written from the chemist's point of view, the well-known and experienced authors provide a thorough and pedagogical introduction, now including example real-life applications of the syntheses, as well as new sections on nanomaterials, templating methods and biomineralization. A valuable resource for advanced undergraduates as well as masters and graduate students in inorganic chemistry and materials science.
Keeping mathematics to a minimum, this book introduces nuclear properties, nuclear screening, chemical shift, spin-spin coupling, and relaxation. It is one of the few books that provides the student with the physical background to NMR spectroscopy from the point of view of the whole of the periodic table rather than concentrating on the narrow applications of 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. Aids to structure determination, such as decoupling, the nuclear Overhauser effect, INEPT, DEPT, and special editing, and two dimensional NMR spectroscopy are discussed in detail with examples, including the complete assignment of the 1H and 13C NMR spectra of D-amygdain. The authors examine the requirements of a modern spectrometer and the effects of pulses and discuss the effects of dynamic processes as a function of temperature or pressure on NMR spectra. The book concludes with chapters on some of the applications of NMR spectroscopy to medical and non-medical imaging techniques and solid state chemistry of both I = F1/2 and I > F1/2 nuclei. Examples and problems, mainly from the recent inorganic/organometallic chemistry literature support the text throughout. Brief answers to all the problems are provided in the text with full answers at the end of the book.

Introduction to Solid State Ionics: Phenomenology and Applications presents a pedagogical, graduate-level treatment of the science and technology of superionic conductors, also known as fast ion conductors or solid electrolytes. Suitable for physics, materials science, and engineering researchers and students, the text emphasizes basic physics and chemistry as well as applications of electrochemical energy materials. The book focuses on fundamental phenomenological aspects, including crystal structure, phonon dispersion, electronic band structure, defects, disorder, nonstoichiometry, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, phase transitions, and statistical mechanics of iono-electron transport. It explains how the design, synthesis, and characterization of materials aid in optimizing diffusion coefficients and ionic conductivities. The author also describes important applications of solid state ionics, including solid state batteries, fuel cells, and electrochemical sensors.

Our German textbook "Festkdrperphysik" has become rather pop ular among German-speaking students, and is currently produced in its 4th edition. Its version in English has already been adopted by many universities in the United States and other countries. This new 2nd edition corresponds to the 4th edition in German. In addition to correcting some typographical errors and making small improvements in the presentation, in the present edition some chapters have been revised or extended. Panel V, for example, has been extended to include a description of angle-resolved photoemis sion and its importance for the study of electronic band structures. Section 10.10 on high-temperature superconductors has completely been rewritten. This active field of research continues to progress rapidly and many new results have emerged since the publication of the first edition. These results shed new light on much of the fun damental physics. The new version of Sect. 10.10 has been developed in discussions with colleagues who are themselves engaged in superconductivity research. We thank, in particular, Professor C. Calandra from the University of Modena and Dr. R. Wordenweber of the Institute of Thin Film and Ion Technology at the Research Centre Jiilich. The revision of the problems was done with the help of Dr. W.
This popular and comprehensive textbook provides all the basic information on inorganic chemistry that undergraduates need to know. For this sixth edition, the contents have undergone a complete revision to reflect progress in areas of research, new and modified techniques and their applications, and use of software packages. Introduction to Modern Inorganic Chemistry begins by explaining the electronic structure and properties of atoms, then describes the principles of bonding in diatomic and polyatomic covalent molecules, the solid state, and solution chemistry. Further on in the book, the general properties of the periodic table are studied along with specific elements and groups such as hydrogen, the 's' elements, the lanthanides, the actinides, the transition metals, and the "p" block. Simple and advanced examples are mixed throughout to increase the depth of students' understanding. This edition has a completely new layout including revised artwork, case study boxes, technical notes, and examples. All of the problems have been revised and extended and include notes to assist with approaches and solutions. It is an excellent tool to help students see how inorganic chemistry applies to medicine, the environment, and biological topics.

Solid-Liquid Separation, Third Edition reviews the equipment and principles involved in the separation of solids and liquids from a suspension. Some important aspects of solid-liquid separation such as washing, flotation, membrane separation, and magnetic separation are discussed. This book is comprised of 23 chapters and begins with an overview of solid-liquid separation processes and the principles involved, including flotation, gravity sedimentation, cake filtration, and deep bed filtration. The following chapters focus on the characterization of particles suspended in liquids; the efficiency of separation of particles from fluids; coagulation and flocculation; gravity thickening; and the operating characteristics, optimum design criteria, and applications of hydrocyclones. The reader is also introduced to various solid-liquid separation processes such as centrifugal sedimentation, screening, and filtration, along with the use of filter aids. Countercurrent washing of solids and problems associated with fine particle recycling are also considered. The final chapter is devoted to the thermodynamics of particle-fluid interaction. This monograph will be useful to chemical engineers and process engineers, particularly those in plant operation, plant design, or equipment testing and commissioning. It can also be used as a textbook for both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
