Introduction to Solid State Chemistry provides a strong background to the structures of solids, along with the factors that determine this structure. The content presented stresses the transformations of solids, both in physical forms and chemical composition. In so doing, topics such as phase transitions, sintering, reactions of coordination compounds, and photovoltaic compounds are described, with kinetics and mechanisms of solid state reactions also covered. This book provides the chemistry of solids, structures of solids, the behavior of solids under applied stresses, the types of reactions that solids undergo, and the phenomenological aspects of reactions in solids.

Kinetics of reactions in solids is very seldom covered in current literature and an understanding of the mechanisms of reactions in solids is necessary for many applications. James E. House provides a balanced treatment of structure, dynamics, and behavior of solids at a level commensurate with upper-level undergraduates or beginning graduate students who wish to obtain an introduction and overview to solid state chemistry.
