Solid-state chemistry is an interdisciplinary field, and these researchers share the common challenge of understanding, controlling, and predicting the structures and properties of solids at the atomic level. This book provides a forum for the presentation of recent advances in the solid-state chemistry of inorganic materials and the impact of these advances on the development of practical applications. Topics include: crystal chemistry of complex systems; dielectrics, crystal chemistry, glasses and electrical transport; transport properties/metal-insulator systems; magnetism and manganates; new materials - meso/nanoporous materials; micro/meso/ nanoporous materials - inorganic/organic hybrids; synthesis, new methods and new materials; solid-state ionics, battery materials, thermopower and optical materials; solid-state ionics, battery materials and energy storage; and thermopower, themal expansion and optical materials. A highlight is a section dedicated to Professor J.M. Honig in recognition of his many contributions to the discipline of solid-state chemistry and his stewardship of the Journal of Solid-State Chemistry.
