Synthesis, Structure, Properties and Applications
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after October 7, 2020
This textbook entitled Fundamentals of Perovskite Oxides: Synthesis, Structure, Properties and Applications summarizes the structure, synthesis routes, and potential applications of perovskite oxide materials. Since these perovskite-type ceramic materials offer opportunities in a wide range of fields of science and engineering, the chapters are broadly organized into four sections of perovskite-type oxide materials and technology.
- Covers recent developments in perovskite oxides
- Serves as a quick reference of perovskite oxides information
- Describes novel synthesis routes for nanostructured perovskites
- Discusses comprehensive details for various crystal structures, synthesis methods, properties, and applications
- Applies to academic education, scientific research, and industrial R&D for materials research in real-world applications like bioengineering, catalysis, energy conversion, energy storage, environmental engineering, and data storage and sensing
This book serves as a handy and practical guideline suitable for students, engineers, and researchers working with advanced ceramic materials.
