Synthesis of Inorganic Materials
4. Edition October 2019
XVIII, 404 Pages, Softcover
The fourth edition of this popular textbook is completely updated and includes a new chapter on self-assembly and self-organization. A must-have resource for students of chemistry and materials science, as well as researchers working in this pioneering field.
Introduces readers to the field of inorganic materials, while emphasizing synthesis and modification techniques
Written from the chemist's point of view, this newly updated and completely revised fourth edition of Synthesis of Inorganic Materials provides a thorough introduction to the exciting and fast developing field of inorganic materials, focusing on methods for their preparation and modification.The latest developments in this area and new topics were included, such as non-classical crystallization, precursor chemistry, citrate-gel and Pechini method, freeze casting, breath figure templating, pseudomorphic transformations, electrochemical methods and strategies based on phase separation processes.
Synthesis of Inorganic Materials, 4th Edition is organized according to synthesis methods and features chapters covering: solid-state reactions; formation of solids from the gas phase; formation of solids from solutions and melts; preparation of inorganic polymers; self-assembly; templating; and syntheses and modification of nanostructured materials. There is also an extensive glossary to help bridge the gap between chemistry, solid state physics and materials science. In addition, a selection of books and review articles is provided at the end of each chapter as a starting point for more in-depth reading.
- Gives the students a thorough overview of the fundamentals and the wide variety of different synthesis methods for inorganic materials with applications in research as well as in industry
- Clearly understandable not only for chemists but also physicists and materials scientists
- Updated with new content and inclusion of new topics
- Written by well-known and experienced authors who follow an intuitive and pedagogical approach
Synthesis of Inorganic Materials, 4th Edition is a valuable resource for advanced undergraduate students as well as masters and graduate students of inorganic chemistry and materials science.

Nicola Hüsing, PhD, was appointed Professor of Materials Chemistry at the Paris-Lodron University of Salzburg, Austria in 2010. Her research interests focus on the liquid phase synthesis of porous materials, inorganic-organic hybrid materials and mesoscopically organized systems, especially with respect to synthesis-structure-property relations.
