Molecular Clusters: A Bridge to Solid-State Chemistry (Cambridge Molecular Science) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Traditionally, solid-state and molecular chemistry are treated separately. Given that clusters can be viewed as solids in the limits of nano-scale dimensions, this is misleading. Features of solid state systems, such as delocalized bonding, that are found in clusters represent a conceptual bridge from the molecular form to the solid state. This textbook describes the structure and bonding of clusters with an approach to solid state materials, drawing upon the interrelationship between the two topics. The focus will be on clusters but sufficient attention will be paid to solid-state compounds at each stage of the development. Written in a pedagogic style with exercises, problems and solutions, this textbook is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of inorganic chemistry. With up-to-date material, this book will also be of interest to those taking advanced general inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, and condensed matter physics.

Synopsis:

Clusters can be viewed as solids at the nano-scale, yet molecular cluster chemistry and solid state chemistry have traditionally been considered as separate topics. This treatment has made it conceptually difficult to appreciate commonalities of structure and bonding between the two. Using analogous models, this is the first book to form a connecting bridge. Although the focus is on clusters, sufficient attention is paid to solid-state compounds at each stage of the development to establish the interrelationship between the two topics. Comprehensive coverage of cluster types by composition, size and ligation, is provided, as is a synopsis of selected research. Written in an accessible style and highly illustrated to aid understanding, this book is suitable for researchers in inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, materials science, and condensed matter physics.
