    Structure and Concentration of Point Defects in Selected Spinels and Simple Oxides presents diagrams and numerical data of important properties of spinels and oxides based on experimental results published in the literature. The values of many parameters presented can be used for optimization of preparation of new systems, to predict the practical properties of these systems. Applications include electronic devices, new metallic alloys with improved corrosion resistance, new ceramic materials, and novel catalysts, particularly for oxygen evolution and reduction reactions.

    Organized into four comprehensive parts, the authors present the problem of the structure and concentration of ionic and electronic defects in magnetite and hausmannite, pure and doped with M3+ cations, and in spinels exhibiting magnetic properties and high electric conductance.

    Additional Features include:

    • Includes 236 figures presenting equilibrium diagrams of point defects and other useful details related to stoichiometric and nonstoichiometric spinels and oxides.
    • Details novel methods of calculation of equilibria involving point defects.
    • Collects scattered data published in nearly 500 original articles since the 1950s on spinels and oxides in one useful volume.

    Building upon the data presented, this book is an indispensable reference for material scientists and engineers developing new metal or oxide-based systems can easily calculate other useful parameters and compare the properties of different materials to select the best candidates for an intended use.

    Andrzej Stokłosa is Professor Emeritus at Cracow University of Technology, Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology in Krakow, Poland. After receiving MSc degree in chemistry, at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, he was employed at the AGH University of Mining and Metallurgy in Krakow in the Department of Solid State Chemistry in the group of Professor Stanisław Mrowec. He received his PhD degree in 1972, DSc (habilitation) degree in 1984. He moved to Cracow University of Technology in 1989 and became Head of Physical Chemistry Department as Associate Professor and was promoted to full professor position in 1992.

    Professor A. Stokłosa is an author and co-author of more than 150 scientific papers, the author of books: Non-Stoichiometric Oxides of 3d Metals (Trans. Tech. Pub. Pfaffikon, Switzerland, 2015 (Mat. Sci. Foundations 79 (2015)). "Basic Phenomenological and Statistical Thermodynamics", "Introduction to Physical Chemistry" and several other standard textbooks for students (in Polish). He has published in the area of solid state materials associated with crystallochemistry; structure and thermodynamics of point defects in metal oxides and sulfides; the defects and electronic structure modification for the use in electrochemical intercalation; kinetics and mechanism of catalytic and electrocatalytic reactions.  

    Stefan S. Kurek is Assistant Professor at Cracow University of Technology in Krakow, Poland. He graduated from this University in 1974, and got his PhD in chemical technology there in 1982. He worked as postdoc in the UK, at the Universities of Birmingham and Bristol, on coordination compounds, including electron transfer from photoexcited porphyrins. Now, his research interests focus on molecular electrochemistry.
