With physical properties that often may not be described by thetransposition of physical laws from 3D space across to 2D or even1D space, low-dimensional solids exhibit a high degree ofanisotropy in the spatial distribution of their chemical bonds.This means that they can demonstrate new phenomena such ascharge-density waves and can display nanoparticulate (0D), fibrous(1D) and lamellar (2D) morphologies.

This text presents some of the most recent researchinto the synthesis and properties of these solids and covers:

  • Metal Oxide Nanoparticles
  • Inorganic Nanotubes and Nanowires
  • Biomedical Applications of Layered Double Hydroxides
  • Carbon Nanotubes and Related Structures
  • Superconducting Borides

Introducing topics such as novel layered superconductors,inorganic-DNA delivery systems and the chemistry and physics ofinorganic nanotubes and nanosheets, this book discusses some of themost exciting concepts in this developing field.

Professor Duncan Bruce graduated from the University ofLiverpool (UK), where he also gained his PhD. In 1984, he took up aTemporary Lectureship in Inorganic Chemistry at the University ofSheffield and was awarded a Royal Society Warren ResearchFellowship. He was then appointed Lecturer in Chemistry and laterSenior Lecturer and co-director of the Sheffield Centre forMolecular Materials. In 1995, he was appointed Professor ofInorganic Chemistry at the University of Exeter. Following theclosure of Exeter's chemistry department in 2005, Professor Brucetook up his present position as Professor of Materials Chemistry inYork. He is currently Chair of the Royal Society of ChemistryMaterials Chemistry Forum. His current research interests includeliquid crystals and silicates. His work has been recognized byvarious awards including the British Liquid Crystal Society's firstYoung Scientist prize and the RSC's Sir Edward Frankland Fellowshipand Corday-Morgan Medal and Prize. He has held visiting positionsin Australia, France, Japan and Italy.

Dr. Richard Walton, who was also formerly based in theDepartment of Chemistry at the University of Exeter, now works inthe Department of Chemistry at the University of Warwick. Hisresearch group works in the area of solid-state materials chemistryand has a number of projects focusing upon the synthesis,structural characterization and properties of inorganicmaterials.

Dermot O'Hare is Professor in the Chemistry ResearchLaboratory at the University of Oxford.
His research group has a wide range of research interests. They allinvolve synthetic chemistry ranging from organometallic chemistryto the synthesis of new microporous solids.
Duncan Bruce and Dermot O'Hare have edited several editions ofInorganic Materials published by John Wiley & SonsLtd.
