218. Rare earth-transition metal-indides (Ya. Kalychak, V. Zaremba, R. Poettgen, M. Lukachuk, and R.-D. Hoffmann) 219. Unconventional superconductivity and magnetism in lanthanide and actinide intermetallic compounds (P. Thalmeier and G. Zwicknagl) 220. Circularly polarized luminescence spectroscopy from lanthanide systems (J.P. Riehl and G. Muller) 221. Lanthanide-containing coordination polymers (O. Guillou and C. Daiguebonne) 222. Cutting DNA and RNA (M. Komiyama)

Description

This volume of the Handbook adds five new chapters to the science of rare earths. Two of the chapters deal with intermetallic compounds. An overview of ternary systems containing rare earths, transition metals and indium – Chapter 218 – opens the volume. It is followed by Chapter 219 sorting out relationships between superconductivity and magnetism. The next two chapters are dedicated to complex compounds of rare earths: Chapter 220 describes structural studies using circularly polarized luminescence spectroscopy of lanthanide systems, while Chapter 221 examines rare-earth metal-organic frameworks, also known as coordination polymers. The final Chapter 222 deals with the catalytic activity of rare earths in site-selective hydrolysis of DNA and RNA.
