  • Multicomponent Silicides for Thermoelectric Materialsby Jean-Claude Tedenac

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 48.14

    This book provides a comprehensive review of the current state of the art in silicon compounds for thermoelectric applications. Silicides are materials with good initial thermoelectric properties, which can be enhanced through tuning of their micro- and macrostructure. These compounds present various conduction mechanisms and complex band structures.... more...

  • Gas Hydratesby Daniel Broseta; Livio Ruffine; Desmedt Arnaud

    Wiley 2017; US$ 135.00 US$ 117.00

    Gas hydrates, or clathrate hydrates, are crystalline solids resembling ice, in which small (guest) molecules, typically gases, are trapped inside cavities formed by hydrogen-bonded water (host) molecules. They form and remain stable under low temperatures – often well below ambient conditions – and high pressures ranging from a few bar... more...
