Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) are crystalline compounds consisting of rigid organic molecules held together and organized by metal ions or clusters. Special interests in these materials arise from the fact that many are highly porous and can be used for storage of small molecules, for example H 2 or CO 2 . Consequently, the materials are ideal... more...

The world is composed of molecules. Some are synthetic while many others are products of nature. Molecules That Amaze Us presents the stories behind many of the most famous and infamous molecules that make up our modern world. Examples include the molecule responsible for the spicy heat in chilies (capsaicin), the world?s first synthetic painkiller... more...

The Periodic Table of Elements hasn't always looked like it does now, a well-organized chart arranged by atomic number. In the mid-nineteenth century, chemists were of the belief that the elements should be sorted by atomic weight. However, the weights of many elements were calculated incorrectly, and over time it became clear that not only did... more...

This book covers a multidisciplinary research field that combines materials chemistry and physics with nanotechnology and applied energy sciences. On the one hand, itincludes introductory chapters on carbon nanomaterials (including synthesis, modification and characterization) and on composites and hybrids (definition and principles). On the other... more...

This book describes new biomaterials based on nanostructural chemically bonded bioceramics, which are widely used as general construction materials, but have found new applications as biomaterials. These biomaterials are produced in situ and in vivo mainly using hydration reactions, that is, reactions between phosphates, silicates, or aluminates... more...

As nanomaterials and their end products occupy the pinnacle position of consumer markets, it becomes vital to analyze their generation processes. One of the green chemistry principles underlines the need for unusual energy sources to generate them. Utilizing the extreme energy from the collapse of cavitation bubbles, generated by either ultrasound... more...

Involved as it is with 95% of the periodic table, inorganic chemistry is one of the foundational subjects of scientific study. Inorganic catalysts are used in crucial industrial processes and the field, to a significant extent, also forms the basis of nanotechnology. Unfortunately, the subject is not a popular one for undergraduates. This book aims... more...
