Advanced Structural Chemistry Discover the relationships between inorganic chemical synthesis, structure, and property with these comprehensive and insightful volumes Advanced Structural Chemistry: Tailoring Properties of Inorganic Materials and their Applications (3 Volume Set) offers readers the opportunity to discover the relationship between the structure and function of matter, develop efficient and precise synthesis methodology, and to understand the theoretical tools for new functional substances. Advanced Structural Chemistry clarifies the relationships between synthesis and structure, as well as structure and property, both of which are central to the creation of new materials with unique functions. In addition to subjects like the syntheses of metal-oxide clusters, metal-organic cages, and metal-organic frameworks with tailored optical, electric, ferroelectric, magnetic, adsorption, separation, and catalytic properties, the accomplished editor Rong Cao provides readers with information on a wide variety of topics, such as: Coordination-assembled metal-organic macrocycles and cages, including metallacycles and metallacages The structural chemistry of metal-oxo clusters, including the oxo clusters of transition metal, main group metal, and lanthanides Synthetic approaches, structural diversities, and biological aspects of molybdenum-based heterometallic sulfide clusters and coordination polymers Group 11-15 metal chalcogenides, including discrete chalcogenide clusters synthesized in ionic liquids The structures of metal-organic frameworks, including one-, two-, and three-dimensional MOFs Perfect for inorganic chemists, structural chemists, solid state chemists, material scientists, and solid state physicists, Advanced Structural Chemistry also belongs on the bookshelves of catalytic and industrial chemists who seek to improve their understanding of the structure and functions of inorganic materials.
Fluoroplastics, Volume 1, compiles in one place a working knowledge of the polymer chemistry and physics of non-melt processible fluoropolymers with detailed descriptions of commercial processing methods, material properties, fabrication and handling information, technologies, and applications. Also, history, market statistics, and safety and recycling aspects are covered. Both volumes contain a large amount of specific property data which is useful for users to readily compare different materials and align material structure with end use applications. Volume 1 concentrates mostly on polytetrafluoroethylene and polychlorotrifluoroethylene and their processing techniques – which are essentially non-melt-processes – used across a broad range of industries including automotive, aerospace, electronic, food, beverage, oil/gas, and medical devices. Since the first edition was published many new technical developments and market changes have taken place and new grades of materials have entered the market. This new edition is a thoroughly updated and significantly expanded revision covering new technologies and applications, and addressing the changes that have taken place in the fluoropolymer markets. Fluoroplastics, Volume 1 is an all-encompassing handbook for non-melt processible fluoropolymers – a unique and invaluable reference for professionals in the fluoropolymer industry and fluoropolymer application industries. Exceptionally broad and comprehensive coverage of non-melt processible fluoropolymers processing and applications. Practical approach, written by long-standing authority in the fluoropolymers industry. New technologies, materials and applications are included in the new edition.
