The revised and updated second edition of the bestselling text on materials chemistry

The thoroughly revised second edition of Introduction to Materials Chemistry offers a review of the basic chemistry of materials science, contains a discussion of the different classes of materials, and includes information on their applications. The author a noted expert in the field shows how the various types of materials are produced, why they possess specific properties, and how they are used in technology.

The second edition has been updated to include a review of the most recent advances and reflects the substantial expansion in the field of materials chemistry. New topics include information on: graphene, nanotubes, light emitting diodes, extreme photolithography, biomedical materials, and metal organic frameworks. At the end of each chapter, there are study questions designed to enable discussion and help to reinforce the acquired knowledge. This important resource:

  • Offers a clear description of basic chemical principles and shows how to distinguish among the various major materials groups
  • Includes a wealth of new topics and illustrative examples to aid in the understanding of the information presented
  • Contains principles of materials synthesis and materials characterization methods
  • Presents a descriptive, non–mathematical treatment of the fundamentals and applications in the field
Written for students, professors, chemists and chemical engineers, and other professionals in related subjects, the revised and updated second edition offers an important introductory text to the interdisciplinary field that encompasses chemistry, physics, biomedicine, and engineering.
