This comprehensive textbook provides a modern, self-contained treatment for upper undergraduate and graduate level students. It emphasizes the links between structure, defects, bonding, and properties throughout, and provides an integrated treatment of a wide range of materials, including crystalline, amorphous, organic and nano- materials. Boxes on synthesis methods, characterization tools, and technological applications distil specific examples and support student understanding of materials and their design. The first six chapters cover the fundamentals of extended solids, while later chapters explore a specific property or class of material, building a coherent framework for students to master core concepts with confidence, and for instructors to easily tailor the coverage to fit their own single semester course. With mathematical details given only where they strengthen understanding, 400 original figures and over 330 problems for hands-on learning, this accessible textbook is ideal for courses in chemistry and materials science.

Patrick M. Woodward Ohio State University.

Patrick M. Woodward is a Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Ohio State University. His research interests include materials discovery and the study of structure-property relationships in extended solids. He has served as chair of the Solid State Chemistry Gordon Conference (2018) and as Associate Editor of the Journal of Solid State Chemistry (2006–2011).
Pavel Karen Universitetet i Oslo.

Pavel Karen is a Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oslo, where he teaches inorganic and solid-state chemistry with a focus on crystallography. He works experimentally with mixed-valence compounds, and studies their crystal structures by X-ray and neutron diffraction, local structures by Mössbauer spectroscopy (collaboration) and phase transitions by calorimetry.
John S. O. Evans University of Durham.

John S. O. Evans is a Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Durham University, where he served as Head of Department from 2009 to 2014. His research interests are in structural materials chemistry and powder diffraction methods. His awards include the 1997 RSC Meldola medal and the 2015 RSC Teamwork in Innovation co-award for collaborative research with industry.
Thomas Vogt University of South Carolina.

Thomas Vogt is a Professor and Educational Foundation Endowed Chair in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Director of the NanoCenter, and adjunct Professor of Philosophy at the University of South Carolina. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Neutron Scattering Society of America.
