Description

With more than 20 contributions from leading research groups, this book provides essential information for chemists and materials scientists working with molecular clusters.
It treats both homonuclear and heteronuclear clusters, including:
the theory and concepts in main-group cluster chemistry,
* novel boranes and heteroboranes,
* silicon/germanium/tin clusters,
* alkali metal suboxides,
* clusters in alloys with mercury,
* chalkogen clusters
* and numerous other compound classes.
The whole is illustrated by examples of the great potential for technical applications such as
electron storage, cancer therapy and in optoelectronic devices.
Its systematic coverage of all relevant main group elements makes this the prime reference source in the field.

"Das vorliegende Buch basiert auf den Beiträgen von Forschungsgruppen zum Schwerpunktprogramm >Aufbau und Funktionalisierung von Polyedergerüsten aus Hauptgruppenelementen<, das von der deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) gefördert wurde. Es gibt daher einen umfassenden Überblick über den aktuellen Stand der Forschungsaktivitäten auf diesem faszinierenden Gebiet der anorganischen Chemie."
