Silicon and silicon compounds are very important materials for modern technologies (for example, computer chips). Silicon-oxygen compounds are the most common (for example, silicates). Silicon compounds have a wide variety of structures and applications (molecular sieves, quartz, ion exchangers, dyes and polymers). This book helps readers understand the comparison between structure and properties - the key to tailor-made materials with tailor-made properties. The volume presents the combined results from an international research project involving 40 interdisciplinary groups. Adopting an application-oriented approach, this handy reference should be of use to silicon chemists, whether working in inorganic, organic, physical or polymer chemistry, materials science or physics.
