“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)
