Building a foundation with a thorough description of crystalline structures, Solid State Chemistry: An Introduction, Fourth Edition presents a wide range of the synthetic and physical techniques used to prepare and characterize solids. Going beyond basic science, the book explains and analyzes modern techniques and areas of research. The book covers: A range of synthetic and physical techniques used to prepare and characterize solids Bonding, superconductivity, and electrochemical, magnetic, optical, and conductive properties STEM, ionic conductivity, nanotubes and related structures such as graphene, metal organic frameworks, and FeAs superconductors Biological systems in synthesis, solid state modeling, and metamaterials This largely nonmathematical introduction to solid state chemistry includes basic crystallography and structure determination, as well as practical examples of applications and modern developments to offer students the opportunity to apply their knowledge in real-life situations and serve them well throughout their degree course. New in the Fourth Edition Coverage of multiferroics, graphene, and iron-based high temperature superconductors, the techniques available with synchrotron radiation, and metal organic frameworks (MOFs) More space devoted to electron microscopy and preparative methods New discussion of conducting polymers in the expanded section on carbon nanoscience

Keeping mathematics to a minimum, this book introduces nuclear properties, nuclear screening, chemical shift, spin-spin coupling, and relaxation. It is one of the few books that provides the student with the physical background to NMR spectroscopy from the point of view of the whole of the periodic table rather than concentrating on the narrow applications of 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. Aids to structure determination, such as decoupling, the nuclear Overhauser effect, INEPT, DEPT, and special editing, and two dimensional NMR spectroscopy are discussed in detail with examples, including the complete assignment of the 1H and 13C NMR spectra of D-amygdain. The authors examine the requirements of a modern spectrometer and the effects of pulses and discuss the effects of dynamic processes as a function of temperature or pressure on NMR spectra. The book concludes with chapters on some of the applications of NMR spectroscopy to medical and non-medical imaging techniques and solid state chemistry of both I = F1/2 and I > F1/2 nuclei. Examples and problems, mainly from the recent inorganic/organometallic chemistry literature support the text throughout. Brief answers to all the problems are provided in the text with full answers at the end of the book.

Our German textbook "Festkdrperphysik" has become rather pop ular among German-speaking students, and is currently produced in its 4th edition. Its version in English has already been adopted by many universities in the United States and other countries. This new 2nd edition corresponds to the 4th edition in German. In addition to correcting some typographical errors and making small improvements in the presentation, in the present edition some chapters have been revised or extended. Panel V, for example, has been extended to include a description of angle-resolved photoemis sion and its importance for the study of electronic band structures. Section 10.10 on high-temperature superconductors has completely been rewritten. This active field of research continues to progress rapidly and many new results have emerged since the publication of the first edition. These results shed new light on much of the fun damental physics. The new version of Sect. 10.10 has been developed in discussions with colleagues who are themselves engaged in superconductivity research. We thank, in particular, Professor C. Calandra from the University of Modena and Dr. R. Wordenweber of the Institute of Thin Film and Ion Technology at the Research Centre Jiilich. The revision of the problems was done with the help of Dr. W.

This revised and updated Fourth Edition of the text builds on the strength of previous edition and gives a systematic and clear exposition of the fundamental principles of solid state physics. The text covers the topics, such as crystal structures and chemical bonds, semiconductors, dielectrics, magnetic materials, superconductors, and nanomaterials. What distinguishes this text is the clarity and precision with which the author discusses the principles of physics, their relations as well as their applications. With the introduction of new sections and additional information, the fourth edition should prove highly useful for the students. This book is designed for the courses in solid state physics for B.Sc. (Hons.) and M.Sc. students of physics. Besides, the book would also be useful to the students of chemistry, material science, electrical/electronic and allied engineering disciplines. New to the Fourth Edition • Solved examples have been introduced to explain the fundamental principles of physics. • Matrix representation for symmetry operations has been introduced in Chapter 1 to enable the use of Group Theory for treating crystallography. • A section entitled ‘Other Contributions to Heat Capacity’, has been introduced in Chapter 5. • A statement on ‘Kondo effect (minimum)’ has been added in Chapter 14. • A section on ‘Graphenes’ has been introduced in Chapter 16. • The section on ‘Carbon Nanotubes’, in Chapter 16 has been revised. • A “Lesson on Group Theory”, has been added as Appendix.

This book provides a study in Bonding, Structure and Solid State Chemistry. It is based on lecture courses given over several years, but is not directed at any particular degree course. Thus, it will find a place in all years of first-degree courses in both chemistry and those subjects for which chemistry forms a significant part. It will also prepare readers for more intensive study in the title topics. Pre-knowledge is assumed in mathematics and physical sciences at about A-level. Additional mathematical and other topics are presented where necessary as appendices, so as not to disturb the flow of the main text. The book is copiously illustrated, including many stereoscopic diagrams (with practical advice on correct viewing) and colour illustrations. A suite of computer programs, some of which are interactive, has been devised for the book and is available on-line from the publisher's website [insert URL here]. They are available for both 32- and 64-bit operating systems, and are easily executed on a PC or laptop; notes on their applications are provided. Problems have been devised for each chapter and fully worked 'tutorial'; solutions are included. After an introductory chapter, the book presents a study based on the main interactive forces responsible for cohesion in the solid state of matter. No classification is without some ambiguity, but that chosen allows for a structured discussion over a wide range of compounds. Each chapter includes worked examples on the study topics which, together with the problems provided, should ensure a thorough understanding of the textual material.

This text was developed from a course for physical chemistry and chemical physics students using cross-polarization (CP) magic angle spinning (MAS) NMR in their laboratory assignments. The book provides students with the details of the CP/MAS experiment as it is used to obtain rare-spin, high-resolution NMR spectra. The design of the CP/MAS experiments and the interpretation of spectra and relaxation measurements require an understanding of the interplay of several fundamental physical interactions not normally encountered in solution NMR. The student can observe the way interacting spin systems behave in the solid state, and have a quantum mechanically rigorous understanding of solid-state spin phenomena. The text will have the added benefit of serving as a self-study resource for students seeking to learn the underlying principles of laboratory experiments using the technique. The history of NMR is also treated, and the instrumentation of the spectrometer and probe are discussed.
