Are You Looking for a Unified and Concise Approach to Teaching and Learning the Structure of Materials? Allen and Thomas present information in a manner consistent with the way future scientists and engineers will be required to think about materials' selection, design, and use. Students will learn the fundamentals of three different states of condensed matter-glasses, crystals, and liquid crystals-and develop a set of tools for describing all of them. Above all, they'll gain a better understanding of the principles of structure common to all materials. Key concepts, such as symmetry theory, are introduced and applied to provide a common viewpoint for describing structures of ceramic, metallic, and polymeric materials. Structure-sensitive properties of real materials are introduced. The text also includes a variety of worked example problems.

This book, which constitutes the first English edition of the French bestseller 'Introduction à la science des matériaux', fits into a global and unified vision of this discipline. A unified teaching in Materials Science is essential, particularly since in recent years, empiricism has strongly been shaken by the intensity of scientific innovation in this area. This work fits well in this global vision. Its exposition is well balanced between fundamental notions and applications and illustrated with concise tables and well-chosen illustrative examples. The didactic approach of this book is perfectly suited to engineering students, as well as physicists or chemists who are not specialized in materials science but who, nevertheless, wish to be aware of this discipline. The work should also be much appreciated by specialists in a particular field of materials science wishing to have a global view on the subject and to position their activity in a wider context. It will be equally very useful to those who left the University benches more than ten years ago. Three main subjects are considered in this work : 1. A basic description of the main classes of materials (metals, ceramics and organic polymers). 2. A concise study of structural imperfection in crystals, phase equilibria and transitions introducing the concept of alloys and a description of microstructures. 3. An analysis of materials behaviour under mechanical constraints and during rupture, and also their physical properties. A concise description of those physical properties which are the most important for the materials science engineer is equally given in this work. It is completed by a study of degradation and corrosion as well as a description of the main composite materials and an introduction to nanomaterials and nanostructured materials.

This text provides students with a solid understanding of the relationship between the structure, processing, and properties of materials. Authors Askeland and Wright present the fundamental concepts of atomic structure and the behavior of materials and clearly link them to the materials issues that students will have to deal with when they enter the industry or graduate school (e.g. design of structures, selection of materials, or materials failures). Fundamental concepts are linked to practical applications, emphasizing the necessary basics without overwhelming the students with too much of the underlying chemistry or physics.

Porous materials are of scientific and technological importance because of the presence of voids of controllable dimensions at the atomic, molecular, and nanometer scales, enabling them to discriminate and interact with molecules and clusters. Interestingly the big deal about this class of materials is about the “nothingness” within — the pore space. International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) classifies porous materials into three categories — micropores of less than 2 nm in diameter, mesopores between 2 and 50 nm, and macropores of greater than 50 nm. In this book, nanoporous materials are defined as those porous materials with pore diameters less than 100 nm. Over the last decade, there has been an ever increasing interest and research effort in the synthesis, characterization, functionalization, molecular modeling and design of nanoporous materials. The main challenges in research include the fundamental understanding of structure-property relations and tailor-design of nanostructures for specific properties and applications. Research efforts in this field have been driven by the rapid growing emerging applications such as biosensor, drug delivery, gas separation, energy storage and fuel cell technology, nanocatalysis and photonics. These applications offer exciting new opportunities for scientists to develop new strategies and techniques for the synthesis and applications of these materials. This book provides a series of systematic reviews of the recent developments in nanoporous materials. It covers the following topics: (1) synthesis, processing, characterization and property evaluation; (2) functionalization by physical and/or chemical treatments; (3) experimental and computational studies on fundamental properties, such as catalytic effects, transport and adsorption, molecular sieving and biosorption; (4) applications, including photonic devices, catalysis, environmental pollution control, biological molecules separation and isolation, sensors, membranes, hydrogen and energy storage, etc. Contents:Nanoporous Materials — An Overview (G Q Lu & X S Zhao)Advances in Mesoporous Materials Templated by Nonionic Block Copolymers (C Yu et al.)Zeolite/Mesoporous Molecular Sieve Composite Materials (D T On & S Kaliaguine)Chromium-Containing Ordered Nanoporous Materials (P Selvam)Surfactant-Templated Mesostructured Materials: Synthesis and Compositional Control (M S Wong & W V Knowles)Organic Host-Guest Structures in the Solid State (A Nangia)Nonsurfactant Route to Nanoporous Phenyl-Modified Hybrid Silica Materials (Y Wei et al.)3D Macroporous Photonic Materials Templated by Self Assembled Colloidal Spheres (Z C Zhou & X S Zhao)Hydrophobic Microporous Silica Membranes for Gas Separation and Membrane Reactors (S Giessler et al.)Synthesis and Characterization of Carbon Nanotubes for Hydrogen Storage (H-M Cheng et al.)Physical Adsorption Characterization of Ordered and Amorphous Mesoporous Materials (M Thommes)Molecular Simulation of Adsorption in Porous Materials (D Nicholson)Surface Functionalization of Ordered Nanoporous Silicates (X S Zhao et al.)Surface Alumination of Mesoporous Silicates (R Mokaya)Acidity Measurement of Nanoporous Aluminosilicates — Zeolites and MCM-41 (J Zheng et al.)Nanocatalysts Prepared by the Molecularly Designed Dispersion Process (P Cool et al.)Acidity-enhanced Nanoporous Catalytic Materials (F-S Xiao & Y Han)Modified Mesoporous Materials as Acid and Base Catalysts (D J Macquarrie)Lewis Acid/Base Catalysts Supported on Nanoporous Silica as Environmental Catalysts (V R Choudhary & B S Uphade)Nanoporous Catalysts for Shape-Selective Synthesis of Specialty Chemicals: A Review of Synthesis of 4,4'-Dialkylbiphenyl (J-P Shen & C Song)Catalysis Involving Mesoporous Molecular Sieves (W S Ahn et al.)Adsorption and Transport in Nanoporous Materials (J P B Mota)Adsorption of Organic Molecules in Nanoporous Adsorbents from Aqueous Solution (R Denoyel)Functionalized Nanoporous Adsorbents for Environmental Remediation (M C Burleigh & S Dai)Nanoporous Adsorbents for Air Pollutant Removal (P Le Cloirrec)Bioadsorption and Separation with Nanoporous Materials (A Daehler et al.)Nanoporous Materials as Supports for Enzyme Immobilization (H H P Yiu & P A Wright)A Novel Non-surfactant Route to Nanoporous Materials and its Biological Applications (Y Wei & K-Y Qiu) Readership: Researchers in nanotechnology, chemical engineering, physical chemistry and solid state chemistry.
