Trends In Chemistry Of Materials: Selected Research Papers Of C N R Rao Hardback
by C. N. R. Rao
Part of the IISC Centenary Lecture Series series
In this collection, the author has compiled a set of his papers representing some of the highlights of materials chemistry.
It features a section on oxidic materials, which includes high-temperature superconductivity, colossal magnetoresistance, electronic phase separation and multiferroics.
The author has also included novel methods for making gallium nitride, boron nitride and such materials, by using precursors and the urea decomposition route.
Moreover, there is a section dealing with open-framework and hybrid materials of which the latter has a great future since one can make use of the rigidity of inorganic structures and the functionality and flexibility of the organic residues to design materials with novel properties.
