From the Back Cover:

THE IMPACT OF CHEMISTRY ON MODERN TECHNOLOGY

Classical chemistry courses emphasize fundamental science. Materials chemistry deals with how chemistry is utilized in modern technology. Introduction to Materials Chemistry gives readers a broad overview of how the fundamentals of chemistry are used to create sophisticated materials and devices that improve modern life. Proceeding logically from the basics to materials in advanced technology, it:

  • Covers the fundamentals of materials chemistry, including principles of materials synthesis and materials characterization methods
  • Introduces readers to the various classes of materials, including small molecules in solids, organic and inorganic polymers, glasses and ceramics, metals, semi- conductors, superconductors, alloys, and composite materials
  • Explains how the various materials are produced and why they possess specific combinations of properties
  • Examines how different materials are used in technology, covering semiconductors, superconductors, solid ionic conductors, membranes, optical and photonic materials, surface science of materials, biomedical materials, and materials in nanoscience and nanotechnology
  • Emphasizes the principles of device design and fabrication
  • Includes a summary of the challenges in the different fields

The chapters on materials in advanced technology help to prepare students for careers in the design and development of materials for uses in the medical, energy, communications, aerospace, and other advanced technology sectors. This is an ideal text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in chemistry, materials science, and chemical engineering. It also provides a general overview for professionals in research and/or industry, illustrating the relationships between different types of solids and how combinations of different materials are often used to solve challenging technical problems.
