Solid state chemistry refers to the study of structure, properties and synthesis of solid materials. It focuses on the making and characterization of the constituent particles of novel materials. Solids are divided into two categories based on the arrangement of their particles and the nature of order present. These categories are crystalline and amorphous solids. A wide variety of techniques are used to study these properties of solids. Some of these are oven techniques like gas reaction, melt methods and solution methods along with chemie douce. The field primarily overlaps with other areas such as thermodynamics, crystallography, solid state physics, ceramics, material science and electronics. This book is a valuable compilation of topics, ranging from the basic to the most complex theories and principles related to this discipline. It studies, analyzes and upholds the pillars of solid state chemistry and its utmost significance in modern times. For someone with an interest and eye for detail, this book covers the most significant topics of solid state chemistry.
