The importance and scope of solid-state chemistry has grown in response to the continuing challenge to understand, control and predict the structures and properties of solids at the atomic level, and to synthesize new compounds with enhanced physical response. The many successes in the preparation of materials with unique electronic, optical, magnetic and catalytic properties are a clear testament to the vitality and importance of solid-state chemistry to materials research. This book provides an interdisciplinary forum for discussion and exchange of ideas on both the recent advances in solid-state chemistry and their impact on the development and application of inorganic materials. Topics include: chalcogenides; synthesis and reactivity; materials synthesis; theory; optical properties; electronic and magnetic properties; dielectrics and ferroelectrics; solid-state ionics and surfaces and interfaces.
