About this Textbook

The 3rd edition of this successful textbook continues to build on the strengths that were recognized by a 2008 Textbook Excellence Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association (TAA).  Materials Chemistry addresses inorganic-, organic-, and nano-based materials from a structure vs. property treatment, providing a suitable breadth and depth coverage of the rapidly evolving materials field — in a concise format. The 3rd edition offers significant updates throughout, with expanded sections on sustainability, energy storage, metal-organic frameworks, solid electrolytes, solvothermal/microwave syntheses, integrated circuits, and nanotoxicity. Most appropriate for Junior/Senior undergraduate students, as well as first-year graduate students in chemistry, physics, or engineering fields, Materials Chemistry may also serve as a valuable reference to industrial researchers. Each chapter concludes with a section that describes important materials applications, and an updated list of thought-provoking questions.

About the authors

Bradley Fahlman is a professor of chemistry in the department of chemistry and biochemistry at Central Michigan University (CMU). He received a B.Sc. with high honors from the University of Regina (in Saskatchewan) in 1996. He was awarded a Ph.D. from Rice University in 2000 (adviser Prof. Andrew R. Barron) for his work on the organometallic synthesis of volatile Group 13 compounds and their application for thin-film growth via chemical vapor deposition.

Dr. Fahlman joined the faculty at CMU in 2002 after a two-year postdoctoral appointment at the University of California, Irvine. His research interests include the synthesis of Group 14 nanostructures and doped metal oxide nanoparticles for energy storage applications, which have been supported by the National Science Foundation, Department of Defense (U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research Development & Engineering Center), Research Corporation, and the Dreyfus Foundation. He is co-author of more than 50 peer reviewed publications, has delivered more than 60 invited talks.

Dr. Fahlman enjoys teaching general, inorganic, and materials chemistry at CMU. He is an advocate for contextual chemistry curricula as well as interactive and adaptable learning resources, which have greatly improved student motivation and interest. When not in the laboratory or classroom, Fahlman enjoys traveling with his wife, Diyonn, and is an avid golfer.

 

Bradley Fahlman received a 2008 Textbook Excellence Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association (TAA) for the first edition of his book Materials Chemistry.
