Metal clusters are on the brink between molecules and nanoparticles in size. With molecular, nano-scale, metallic as well as non-metallic aspects, metal clusters are a growing, interdisciplinary field with numerous potential applications in chemistry, catalysis, materials and nanotechnology.This third volume in the series of hot topics from inorganic chemistry covers all recent developments in the field of metal clusters, with some 20 contributions providing an in-depth view. The result is a unique perspective, illustrating all facets of this interdisciplinary area:Inter-electron Repulsion and Irregularities in the Chemistry of Transition SeriesStereochemical Activity of Lone Pairs in Heavier Main Group Element CompoundsHow Close to Close Packing?Forty-Five Years of Praseodymium DiiodideCentered Zirconium ClustersTitanium Niobium OxychloridesTrinuclear Molybdenum and Tungsten Cluster ChalcogenidesCurrent State of (B,C,N)-Compounds of Calcium and LanthanumTernary Phases of Lithium with Main-Group and Late-Transition MetalsPolar Intermetallics and Zintl Phases along the Zintl BorderRare Earth Zintl PhasesStructure-Property Relationships in IntermetallicsTernary and Quaternary Niobium Arsenide Zintl PhasesThe Building Block Approach to Understanding Main-Group-Metal Complex StructuresCation-Deficient Quaternary ThiospinelsA New Class of Hybrid Materials via Salt Inclusion SynthesisLayered Perrhenate and Vanadate Hybrid SolidsHydrogen Bonding in Metal HalidesSyntheses and Catalytic Properties of Titanium Nitride NanoparticlesSolventless ThermolysisNew Potential Scintillation Materials in Borophosphate Systems.With its didactical emphasis, this volume addresses a wide readership, such that both students and specialists will profit from the expert contributions.
