In this second volume, the editors have assembled an international team of experts who provide an unparalleled look at their latest research results in:
solid state chemistry
and many related topics.
For everyone wanting to stay abreast of developments in this increasingly specialized field.
From reviews to the first Volume I Inorganic Chemistry Highlights:
"This volume, valuable for teachers, researchers, and advanced students, provides us with numerous brief overviews of modern/hot highlights in the field of inorganic chemistry.... The editors appear to have been quite successful in their endavor. ... Many of the authors are recognized experts in their aeras. ... The presentation is excellent, ... This volume should have an excellent impact, particularly among those who wish to expand their breadth and understanding of modern inorganic chemistry,... We look forward to the appearance of Volume 2"

Dieter Naumann studied chemistry at the Rheinisch–Westfaelische Technische Hochschule (RWTH) at Aachen. His diploma (1967) and doctoral theses (1969) were supervised by Martin Schmeisser. Research on perfluoroalkyl iodine compounds led to his lecturing qualification in inorganic chemistry at the University of Dortmund in 1975. From 1967 until 1989 he was a professor in Dortmund, becoming a Full Professor of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry at the University of Cologne in 1989. His main research interests are syntheses of fluoroorgano groups 10 to 18 element compounds.
Lars Wesemann studied chemistry at the Rheinisch–Westfaelische Technische Hochschule in Aachen. His diploma and doctoral theses were supervised by Gerhard E. Herberich, and he gained the latter in 1990. After that he worked in Dietmar Seyferth′s group at MIT for one year before returning to the RWTH Aachen. Independent research led him to his lecturing qualification in inorganic chemistry in 1997. He was a Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Cologne from 1999 until 2003, and is now a Full Professor at the University of Tübingen.
