Analysis on Synthesis, Characterization, and Properties of Nanostructured Solids

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Functionalized Inorganic Fluorides: Synthesis, Characterization and Properties of Nanostructured Solids" to their offering.

Functionalized Inorganic Fluorides: Synthesis, Characterization & Properties of Nanostructured Solids covers several classes of nanostructured and functionalized inorganic fluorides, oxide-fluorides, and fluorinated oxides such as silica and alumina. Ranging from powders or glass-ceramics to thin layers and coatings, they have applications as more efficient and less aggressive catalysts, UV absorbers, planar optical waveguides, integrated lasers and optical amplifiers, luminescent materials, anti-reflective coatings and high Tc superconductors.

With a focus on new types of solids, such as nanopowders, hybrids, mesoporous fluorides, and intercalation compounds, the book covers new synthesis routes; physical-chemical characterizations - including morphology, structure, spectroscopic and optical behaviour; detailed ab initio investigations and simulations; and -last but not least- potential applications.

Key Topics Covered:

  1. Sol-Gel Synthesis of Nano-Scaled Metal Fluorides, Mechanism and Properties
  2. Microwave-Assisted Route Towards Fluorinated Nanomaterials
  3. High Surface Area Metal Fluorides as Catalysts
  4. Investigation of surface acidity using a range of probe molecules
