Smart, Lesley E. and Moore, Elaine A. (2005). Solid state chemistry: an introduction. 3rd edition. Taylor & Francis CRC Press.



Provides a solid background to a fast-changing field, and also covers areas of new innovation
Uses interesting applications to put the topics presented in context
Incorporates a two-color layout and a four-color section to facilitate understanding of crystal structures
Contains an extensive bibliography and suggestions for further reading to expedite searching for other relevant literature
Includes question and answer sets, and an accompanying solutions manual

Intended for first- and second-year undergraduates, this introduction to solid state chemistry includes practical examples of applications and modern developments to offer students the opportunity to apply their knowledge in real-life situations.

The third edition of Solid State Chemistry: An Introduction has been comprehensively revised and updated. Building a foundation with a thorough description of crystalline structures, the book presents a wide range of the synthetic and physical techniques used to prepare and characterize solids. Other fundamental discussions include: bonding, superconductivity, and electrochemical, magnetic, optical, and conductive properties. The authors have added sections on fuel cells and electrochromic materials; conducting organic polymers, organic superconductors, and fullerenes; mesoporous solids and ALPOs; photonics; giant magnetoresistance (GMR) and colossal magnetoresistance (CMR); and p-wave (triplet) superconductors. The book also includes a completely new chapter, which examines the solid state chemical aspects of nanoscience. Each chapter contains a set of review questions and an accompanying solutions manual is available.

Solid State Chemistry: An Introduction, Third Edition is written in a clear, approachable style that enhances the material by integrating its concepts in the context of current applications and areas of promising research.
