Download this PDF book: Solid State Chemistry: An Introduction, Third Edition 3rd Edition by Lesley E. Smart, Elaine A. Moore 

Intended for first- and second-year undergraduates, this introduction to solid state chemistry includes practical examples of applications and modern developments to offer students the opportunity to apply their knowledge in real-life situations.

The third edition of Solid State Chemistry: An Introduction has been comprehensively revised and updated. Building a foundation with a thorough description of crystalline structures, the book presents a wide range of the synthetic and physical techniques used to prepare and characterize solids. 

Other fundamental discussions include:  bonding, superconductivity, and electrochemical, magnetic, optical, and conductive properties. 

The authors have added sections on fuel cells and electrochromic materials; conducting organic polymers, organic superconductors, and fullerenes; mesoporous solids and ALPOs; photonics; giant magnetoresistance (GMR) and colossal magnetoresistance (CMR); and p-wave (triplet) superconductors. 

The book also includes a completely new chapter, which examines the solid state chemical aspects of nanoscience. Each chapter contains a set of review questions and an accompanying solutions manual is available.

Solid State Chemistry: An Introduction, Third Edition is written in a clear, approachable style that enhances the material by integrating its concepts in the context of current applications and areas of promising research.

About the Authors 

Lesley E.Smart studied chemistry at Southampton University. After completing a Ph.D. in Raman spectroscopy, also at Southampton, she moved to a lectureship at the Royal University of Malta. 

After returning to the United Kingdom, she took an SRC Fellowship to Bristol University to work on X-ray crystallography for 3 years. Since 1977, she has worked at the Open University as a lecturer, and then senior lecturer (2000), in inorganic chemistry. 

At the Open University, she has been involved in the production of undergraduate courses in inorganic and physical chemistry. Most recently, she was the coordinating editor of The Molecular World course, which has been copublished with the RSC as a series of eight books. She was also an author on two of these, The Third Dimension and Separation, Purification and Identification. 

Her research interests are in the characterization of the solid state, and she has over 40 publications in single-crystal Raman studies, X-ray crystallography, zintl phases, pigments, and heterogeneous catalysis. Solid State Chemistry was first produced in 1992. 

Since then, it has been translated into French, German, Spanish, and Japanese. Elaine A.Moore studied chemistry as an undergraduate at Oxford University and then stayed on to complete a D.Phil, in theoretical chemistry with Peter Atkins. After a 2-year, postdoctoral position at Southampton, she joined the Open University in 1975 as course assistant, becoming a lecturer in Chemistry in 1977 and Senior lecturer in 1998. 

She has produced OU teaching texts in chemistry for courses at levels 1, 2, and 3 and has written texts in astronomy at level 2. The text Molecular Modelling and Bonding, which forms part of the OU Level 2 Chemistry Course, was copublished by the Royal Society of Chemistry as part of The Molecular World series. She oversaw the introduction of multimedia into chemistry courses and designed multimedia material for levels 1 and 2. 

She is coauthor, with Dr. Rob Janes of the Open University, of Metal-Ligand Bonding, which is part of a level 3 Course in Inorganic Chemistry and copublished with the Royal Society of Chemistry. Her research interests are in theoretical chemistry applied to solid state systems and to NMR spectroscopy. 

She is author or coauthor on over 40 papers in scientific journals. She was coauthor of an article in Chemical Reviews on nitrogen NMR spectroscopy of metal nitrosyl complexes.
