Synthesis of Inorganic Materials
This third edition of the popular textbook contains 30% new and/or revised content to reflect the latest developments in this fast developing field. Written from the chemist's point of view, the well-known and experienced authors provide a thorough and pedagogical introduction, now including example real-life applications of the syntheses, as well as new sections on nanomaterials, templating methods and biomineralization.
A valuable resource for advanced undergraduates as well as masters and graduate students in inorganic chemistry and materials science.

He then worked as a postdoctoral researcher with W.S. Johnson at Stanford University. From 1982 to 1994 he held a chair in inorganic chemistry at the University of Würzburg, as well as various positions at the Fraunhofer Institute of Silicate Research in Würzburg from 1989 to 1994. His research interests are centered around application-oriented fundamental research on solgel processes and inorganic-organic hybrid materials.
Nicola Hüsing was appointed Professor of Materials Chemistry at the Paris-Lodron University of Salzburg, Austria in 2010. She received her PhD in 1997. The following year she was awarded a post-doctoral fellowship with C.J. Brinker in Alberquerque, USA. Returning to Vienna, she gained her lecturing qualification in 2003, becoming a full professor of inorganic chemistry at the University of Ulm one year later.
Professor Hüsing's research interests focus on the liquid phase synthesis of porous materials, inorganic-organic hybrid materials and mesoscopically organized systems, especially with respect to synthesis - structure - property relations.
* The chapter on nanomaterials will be rewritten to accommodate new developments and new sub-chapters will be included.
* There will be a new chapter on templating methods.
* The subchapter on biomineralization will be rewritten.
* Examples of industrially applied syntheses will be implemented.
“A valuable resource for advanced undergraduates as well as masters and graduate students in inorganic chemistry and materials science.” (Chimie Nouvelle, 1 March 2013)
“The authors have succeeded in writing a text that spans chemistry and materials science, with practical applications in both areas. It is a useful reference for interested audiences. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, researchers/faculty, and professionals/practitioners.” (Choice, 1 November 2012)
