Lanthanides: Fundamentals and Applications provides the fundamentals, new research, promising applications and future outlooks of lanthanide compounds and lanthanide-based materials. The book begins with an introduction, including key concepts, oxidation states and sources, extraction and separation of the lanthanides, followed by spectroscopic and magnetic properties, and metals, crystals and compounds. Organometallic compounds, coordination compounds, molecular magnetic materials and luminescent materials are covered before a discussion of specific lanthanide applications. Spintronics, bioimaging, photoelectric materials, catalysis and nuclear applications are discussed. This comprehensive resource is ideal for researchers and students studying inorganic and materials chemistry, in both academia and industry.
