Encyclopedia of the Alkaline Earth Compounds

Encyclopedia of the Alkaline Earth Compounds is a compilation describing the physical and chemical properties of all of the alkaline earth compounds that have been elucidated to date in the scientific literature. These compounds are used in applications such as LEDs and electronic devices such as smart phones and tablet computers. Preparation methods for each compound are presented to show which techniques have been successful. Structures and phase diagrams are presented where applicable to aid in understanding the complexities of the topics discussed.

With concise descriptions presenting the chemical, physical and electrical properties of any given compound, this subject matter will serve as an introduction to the field. This compendium is vital for students and scientific researchers in all fields of scientific endeavors, including non-chemists.

  • "Ropp has compiled this comprehensive reference volume on alkaline-earth compounds, intended to aid researchers by reducing search-time in determining if given compounds are known to exist and providing starting points for expected properties. Chapters are systematically compiled by groups of the periodic table, with subsections for each element in the group and each alkaline-earth metal treated in order within the subsection."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
