Solid-state chemistry continues to span and to spawn multiple materials research areas, attracting investigators from chemistry, condensed-matter physics, materials science and engineering, ceramics, chemical engineering, and mineralogy/geology, to name a few. The common challenge is to understand and to predict structures and properties of new materials. As with earlier volumes in this series from the Materials Research Society, the presentations here represent interdisciplinary research from around the world and explore not only recent advances in the solid-state chemistry of inorganic materials, but also their impact on commercial applications. The book covers a broad range of topics, including synthesis and characterization of novel functional materials; design and fabrication of nanostructures and nanomaterials; crystal and structural chemistry; catalysis; gas separation and storage; and magnetic and optical applications. Both theoretical and computational studies of solid-state inorganic materials are featured. Joint presentations with solid-state ionics are also particularly fruitful.
