Описание: Material synthesis by the transformation of organometallic compounds (precursors) by vapor deposition techniques such as chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and atomic layer deposition (ALD) has been in the forefront of modern day research and development of new materials. There exists a need for new routes for designing and synthesizing new precursors as well as the application of established molecular precursors to derive tuneable materials for technological demands. With regard to the precursor chemistry, a most detailed understanding of the mechanistic complexity of materials formation from molecular precursors is very important for further development of new processes and advanced materials. To emphasize and stimulate research in these areas, this volume comprises a selection of case studies covering various key-aspects of the interplay of precursor chemistry with the process conditions of materials formation, particularly looking at the similarities and differences of CVD, ALD and nanoparticle synthesis, e.g. colloid chemistry, involving tailored molecular precursors.
Описание: This volume illustrates the contributions that modern techniques in simulation and modeling can make to materials chemistry research and the level of accuracy achievable.

Описание: Our current technologically-advanced lifestyles are ever-dependent on advanced materials. In order to continue these developmental efforts to further improve our quality of life, a thorough knowledge of material structures, methods of synthesis, and characterization techniques is essential. However, more relevant to our civilization than incremental progressions in consumer products, radical technologies must be developed in order to address worldwide crises such as environmental pollution/greenhouse effect, dwindling petroleum reserves, and strengthening the homeland security of nations across the world.Materials Chemistry is the first textbook that describes the structure vs. property relationship of all major classes of materials. This book will be suitable for both graduate and advanced undergraduate students, as well as industrial scientists wishing to learn more about particular classes of materials. Many illustrations and detailed bibliographies are provided throughout, as well as special sections that describe emerging applications and pose thought-provoking questions -- all designed to foster student-instructor interactions. Laboratory modules that offer a "hands-on" approach for the study of materials are also provided.

Описание: The book is designed to appeal to advanced undergraduates and graduate students in chemistry, materials science,and chemical engineering departments, by leading them stepwise from the elementary chemistry on which materials science depends, through a discussion of the different classes of materials, and ending with a description of how materials are used in devices and general technology. The book is divided into three sections. The first part consists of four introductory chapters - (1) What is materials chemistry? (2) Fundamental principles that underlie the subject, (3) Basic synthesis and reaction chemistry, and (4) Structure determination and special techniques for materials characterization. These chapters deal with basic chemistry that should be familiar to juniors, seniors and graduate students. At the same time this section introduces topics that the student may not have encountered before, such as materials characterization methods and principles of materials synthesis. The second section provides an introduction to the various classes of materials. Different chapters deal with small molecules in solids, organic and inorganic polymers, glasses and ceramics, metals, and with alloys and composite materials. In these chapters the aim is to show how different types of materials are produced, and why they possess specific combinations of properties. The emphasis is on the chemistry rather than the physics or engineering. In the third section the foregoing subject matter is employed to examine how different materials are used in technology. Here, the eight chapters cover important topics such as semiconductors, superconductors, solid ionic conductors, membranes, optical andphotonic materials, surface science, biomedical materials, and nanoscience and nanotechnology. These chapters bring together the principles and topics covered in the earlier chapters to illustrate how different devices make use of a wide variety of different materials, and how the technology requires an understanding of many different aspects of the field rather than a narrow focus on one specialty. The chapters in this section are meant to prepare students for careers that in many cases will be weighted toward the design and development of devices in the medical, communications, aerospace, and other advanced technology sectors. An Appendix is provided at the end of the book to explain materials-related terminology that may be unfamiliar to the student. Each chapter will contain questions for class discussions or essays.

Описание: The 2nd edition of Materials Chemistry builds on the strengths that were recognized by a 2008 Textbook Excellence Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association (TAA). Materials Chemistry addresses inorganic-, organic-, and nano-based materials from a structure vs. property treatment, providing a suitable breadth and depth coverage of the rapidly evolving materials field — in a concise format. The 2nd edition continues to offer innovative coverage and practical perspective throughout, e.g.: the opening solid-state chemistry chapter uses color illustrations of crystalline unit cells and digital photos of models to clarify their structures. This edition features more archetypical unit cells and includes fundamental principles of X-ray crystallography and band theory. In addition, an ample amorphous-solids section has been expanded to include more details regarding zeolite syntheses, as well as ceramics classifications and their biomaterial applications. The subsequent metals chapter has been re-organized for clarity, and continues to treat the full spectrum of powder metallurgical methods, complex phase behaviors of the Fe-C system and steels, and topics such as corrosion and shape-memory properties. The mining/processing of metals has also been expanded to include photographs of various processes occurring in an actual steelmaking plant. The semiconductor chapter addresses evolution and limitations/solutions of modern transistors, as well as IC fabrication and photovoltaics. Building on the fundamentals presented earlier, more details regarding the band structure of semiconductors is now included, as well as discussions of GaAs vs. Si for microelectronics applications, and surface reconstruction nomenclature. The emerging field of ‘soft lithographic’ patterning is now included in this chapter, and thin film deposition methodologies are also greatly expanded to now include more fundamental aspects of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and atomic layer deposition (ALD). The polymer and ‘soft’ materials chapter represents the largest expansion for the 2nd edition. This chapter describes all polymeric classes including dendritic polymers, as well as important additives such as plasticizers and flame-retardants, and emerging applications such as molecular magnets and self-repairing polymers. This edition now features ‘click chemistry’ polymerization, silicones, conductive polymers and biomaterials applications such as biodegradable polymers, biomedical devices, drug delivery, and contact lenses. Final chapters on nanomaterials and materials-characterization techniques are also carefully surveyed, focusing on nomenclature, synthetic techniques, and applications taken from the latest scientific literature. The 2nd edition has been significantly updated to now include nanotoxicity, vapor-phase growth of 0-D nanostructures, and more details regarding synthetic techniques and mechanisms for solution-phase growth of various nanomaterials. Graphene, recognized by the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics, is now also included in this edition. Most appropriate for Junior/Senior undergraduate students, as well as first-year graduate students in chemistry, physics, or engineering fields, Materials Chemistry may also serve as a valuable reference to industrial researchers. Each chapter concludes with a section that describes important materials applications, and an updated list of thought-provoking questions. The appendices have also been updated with additional laboratory modules for materials synthesis (e.g., porous silicon) and a comprehensive timeline of major materials developments.
