Chemical Bonding in Solids examines how atoms in solids are bound together and how this determines the structure and properties of materials. Over the years, diverse concepts have come from many areas of chemistry, physics, and materials science, but often these ideas have remained largelywithin the area where they originated. One of the goals of this text is to bring some of these ideas together and show how a broader picture exists once some of the prejudices which isolate one area from another are removed. This book will be ideal for students taking courses in solid statechemistry, materials chemistry, and solid state physics.
Jeremy K. Burdett is at University of Chicago.

Editorial Reviews

"I found the critical re-inspection of familiar concepts such as ionic radii and close packing of spheres most interesting. The author does away with Pauling's rules and the classification of bond types as introduced by Van Arkel and Ketelaar."--Wolfgang Sachtler, NorthwesternUniversity
