Explore the theory and applications of superatomic clusters and cluster assembled materials

Superatoms: Principles, Synthesis and Applications delivers an insightful and exciting exploration of an emerging subfield in cluster science, superatomic clusters and cluster assembled materials. The book presents discussions of the fundamentals of superatom chemistry and their application in catalysis, energy, materials science, and biomedical sciences.

Readers will discover the foundational significance of superatoms in science and technology and learn how they can serve as the building blocks of tailored materials, promising to usher in a new era in materials science. The book covers topics as varied as the thermal and thermoelectric properties of cluster-based materials and clusters for CO2 activation and conversion, before concluding with an incisive discussion of trends and directions likely to dominate the subject of superatoms in the coming years.

Readers will also benefit from the inclusion of:
* A thorough introduction to the rational design of superatoms using electron-counting rules
* Explorations of superhalogens, endohedrally doped superatoms and assemblies, and magnetic superatoms
* A practical discussion of atomically precise synthesis of chemically modified superatoms
* A concise treatment of superatoms as the building blocks of 2D materials, as well as superatom-based ferroelectrics and cluster-based materials for energy harvesting and storage

Perfect for academic researchers and industrial scientists working in cluster science, energy materials, thermoelectrics, 2D materials, and CO2 conversion, Superatoms: Principles, Synthesis and Applications will also earn a place in the libraries of interested professionals in chemistry, physics, materials science, and nanoscience.

Purusottam (Puru) Jena is Distinguished Professor of Physics at Virginia Commonwealth University, USA. He originated the idea of superatoms and co-authored the first paper in the field in 1992. He has since published numerous papers and review articles on superatom clusters as materials building blocks. He has worked extensively on superhalogens and superalkalis.

Qiang Sun is Professor at Peking University, China and Visiting Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University, USA. His research focus is on nanostructure physics, including 2D materials and clusters, and the physics of energy materials.
