9780444868510: Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earths

The rare earths play a unique role in science. These seventeen related elements afford a panoply of subtle variations deriving from the systematic development of their electronic configurations, allowing a test of theory with excellent resolution. In contrast they find widespread use in even the most mundane processes such as steel making, for polishing materials and gasoline cracking catalysts. In between are exotic uses such as TV screen phosphors, lasers, high strength permanent magnets and chemical probes. This multi-volume handbook covers the entire rare earth field in an integrated manner. Each chapter is a comprehensive up-to-date, critical review of a particular segment of the field. The work offers the researcher and graduate student alike, a complete and thorough coverage of this fascinating field.

From the Back Cover:

In keeping with the tradition of the Handbook, volume 35 covers a wide diversity of topics involving the rare earth elements. The topics range from solid oxides for advanced, energy efficient electrical power generation (Chapter 223); to the oxo-selenate members of the vast family of complex oxo-anions; to organic beta-diketonate complexes (Chapter 225); to the utilization of organic complexes for molecular recognition and sensing (Chapter 226).

Natsuko Sakai, Katsuhiko Yamaji, Teruhisa Horita, Yue Ping Xiong and Harumi Yokokawa examine the role of yttria stabilized zirconia, R2O3-ceria, rare earth-alkaline earth manganites, and rare earth cobaltites, chromates and titanates as solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) components, i.e. the electrolyte, anode, cathode and interconnects.

Mathias Wickleder's review focuses on one particular family of oxo-compounds, which has been studied extensively in the past few years because of their rich structural chemistry, complex thermal behaviors and dual oxidation states {selenites [or oxo-selenate (IV)] and selenates [or oxo-selenate (VI)]}.

Koen Binnemans points out that the rare earth b-diketonates, which have been known for about 100 years, are one of the most extensively investigated rare earth coordination compounds. This popularity is due to the fact that they are easily synthesized, readily available from commercial sources, and have many applications.

Satoshi Shinoda, Hiroyuki Miyake, and Hiroshi Tsukube have summarized the recent advances in the chemistry of rare earth complexes in molecular recognition and sensing technology. When a lanthanide containing receptor binds with a given substrate, specific interactions may occur in the inner and/or outer coordination sphere(s), and by monitoring these resultant interactions precise information can be obtained about compounds (i.e. amino acids, proteins) and living organs.

About the Author:

Gschneidner has published over 485 journal articles and chapters in books and edited or written 40 books on the chemistry, materials science, and physics or rare earth materials. He was the founder of the Rare-earth Information Center and served as its Director for 30 years.

Professor J-C.G. Bünzli is a physical-inorganic and analytical chemist by training and an active researcher in the field of co-ordination and supramolecular chemistry of rare-earth ions. His research focuses mainly on designing self-assembled functional edifices containing rare-earth ions and with predetermined photophysical and/or magnetic properties.

Professor V.K. Pecharsky is an active researcher in the field of structure-physical property relationships of rare earth-based intermetallic compounds. He co-authored over 250 papers published in peer reviewed journals and as chapters in books, holds 10 patents, mostly related to preparation and processing rare earth-based alloys.
