The Defect Chemistry of Metal Oxides (Monographs on the Physics and Chemistry of Materials)
The Defect Chemistry of Metal Oxides is a unique introduction to the equilibrium chemistry of solid inorganic compounds with a focus on metal oxides. Accessible to students with little or no background in defect chemistry, it explains how to apply basic principles and interpret the related behavior of materials. Topics discussed include lattice and electronic defects, doping effects, nonstoichiometry, and mass and charge transport. The text distinctly emphasizes the correlation between the general chemical properties of the constituent elements and the defect chemistry and transport properties of their compounds. It covers the types of defects formed, the effects of dopants, the amount and direction of nonstoichiometry, the depths of acceptor and donor levels, and more. Concluding chapters present up-to-date and detailed analyses of three systems: titanium dioxide, cobalt oxide and nickel oxide, and barium titanate. The Defect Chemistry of Metal Oxides is the only book of its kind that incorporates sample problems for students to solve. Suitable for a variety of courses in materials science and engineering, chemistry, and geochemistry, it also serves as a valuable reference for researchers and instructors.

The Heavier d-Block Metals: Aspects of Inorganic and Coordination Chemistry (Oxford Chemistry Primers)
This primer addresses the chemistry of the second and third row d-block metals and assumes a knowledge of the chemistry of the first row metals. Beginning with a summary of basic properties, the book covers periodic trends, aqueous solution chemistry and redox properties, the range of coordination numbers shown by second and third row metals, electronic spectra and magnetic properties, metal-metal bonding, triple and quadruple bonds, bridging ligands, pi donar ligands in which metal-metal bonding is important, and polyoxometallates. The volume also contains a detailed guide for further reading and a section called "Metals in Action" which lists references for applications of d-block metals in such devices as catalytic converters and molecular wires.

Chemistry of the First-row Transition Metals (Oxford Chemistry Primers)
The reactivity and structural properties of first row transition metals and their compounds depend on the electronic configuration of the d electrons of the metal. The book, which is intended for students who have had at least one year of inorganic chemistry, describes the most significant structures, reactions, and other important properties of co-ordination, organometallic, and solid state compounds. It also sketches the role of first row transition metals in biology. This text is designed to link the chemistry described in earlier Primers, and the emphasis is on facts and basic theory.

The Mechanisms of Reactions at Transition Metal Sites (Oxford Chemistry Primers)
Understanding the mechanisms of the reactions at transition metal sites is a key component in designing synthetic methods, developing industrial homogeneous catalysts, and investigating metalloenzymes. This much-needed text provides an introduction to the subject. Unlike other texts currently on the market, which are written for the advanced student or practicing researcher, this book serves as a broad-based, systematic guide through the fundamentals of transition metal mechanistic chemistry. Topics include substitution, electron transfer, oxidative addition, activation of ligands, and insertion reactions. Students and teachers of inorganic chemistry will welcome this systematic, introductory treatment of the subject.

One-Dimensional Metals: Conjugated Polymers, Organic Crystals, Carbon Nanotubes and Graphene
Low-dimensional solids are of fundamental interest in materials science due to their anisotropic properties. Written not only for experts in the field, this book explains the important concepts behind their physics and surveys the most interesting one-dimensional systems and discusses their present and emerging applications in molecular scale electronics. Chemists, polymer and materials scientists as well as students will find this book a very readable introduction to the solid-state physics of electronic materials.

In this completely revised and expanded third edition the authors also cover graphene as one of the most important research topics in the field of low dimensional materials for electronic applications. In addition, the topics of nanotubes and nanoribbons are widely enlarged to reflect the research advances of the last years.

Transuranium People, The: The Inside Story
In this highly interesting book, three pioneering investigators provide an account of the discovery and investigation of the nuclear and chemical properties of the twenty presently known transuranium elements. The neutron irradiation of uranium led to the discovery of nuclear fission in 1938 and then to the first transuranium element, neptunium (atomic number 93), in 1940. Plutonium (94) quickly followed and the next nine elements completed the actinide series by 1961. Investigation of the chemical properties of the actinides was followed more recently by chemical studies of the first three transactinides — rutherfordium (104), hahnium (105), and seaborgium (106). Recent discoveries have extended the known elements to 112.

The Fullerenes: New Horizons for the Chemistry, Physics and Astrophysics of Carbon
The study of carbon has been revolutionized since the discovery of the soccerball shaped C60 molecule Buckminsterfullerene. This book examines the modern study of the chemistry, physics and astrophysics of carbon, through contributions from leading workers in the subject. It includes a history of the origins of a soccerball structure for the C60 molecule and a section on its discovery and production. It then looks at the theory and the astrophysics and chemistry of the material. These contributions result from a meeting held at the Royal Society in October 1992. The contributions formerly appeared in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society.

The Metallic Bond and the Structure of Metals (Of the USSR; 4) (English and Russian Edition)
The classical concept of the interaction of collectivised almost free valent electrons with the periodic field of a crystalline lattice forms the basis of the zone theory of metals. However, the successful development of this theory has not yet resulted in the solution of the problems of the origin of the actual alloys and compounds which have been produced experimentally by diffraction methods. This is one surprising difference between metal physics and quantum chemistry, where the structure of molecules is deduced from first principles -- the electron structure of the atoms and wave functions -- by applying chemical bond theory and the methods of valent bonds and molecular orbits. This book develops the concept of the metallic bond, uniting the ideas from metal physics concerning the collectivisation of electrons and chemical bond theory concerning the overlapping of orbitals.
