Inorganic Solid Fluorides: Chemistry and Physics deals with the chemical and physical properties of inorganic solid fluorides and covers topics ranging from methods used in the preparation of fluorides to the crystal chemistry of fluorides and transition metal oxyfluorides. Defects in solid fluorides are also discussed, along with fluorine intercalation compounds of graphite and high oxidation states in fluorine chemistry. This book is comprised of 21 chapters and begins with an overview of general trends related to fluorides, including bonding problems and economic implications of fluorides. Some of the methods for the synthesis of inorganic solid fluorides are then described, including gas-phase reactions, reactions in solution, gas-solid reactions, and partial or all solid-state reactions. Subsequent chapters explore the properties of fluoride glasses; ferromagnetism and ferrimagnetism in fluorides; competing spin interactions and frustration effects in fluorides; and electronic conduction in fluorides. Fast fluorine ion conductors and nonlinear properties of fluorides are also considered. The final chapter is devoted to industrial uses of inorganic fluorides. This monograph should be of interest to physicists and inorganic chemists as well as students of physics and inorganic chemistry.
