Understanding chemistry by C. N. R Rao ( )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the international edition of Prof Rao's popular science book, an elementary introduction intended for high school students and others interested in appreciation of chemistry. Ideas and facts are presented, and a few questions raised, in order to interest the reader in the subject and to arouse curiosity. The book covers essential aspects of chemistry, features of the modern periodic table, bonding between atoms in molecules and substances, shapes and structures of molecules, metals and materials, alkalis and acids, carbon compounds, electronic structure of atoms, classification of elements, simple chemical reactions, biopolymers and man-made polymers and aspects of energy. There are also life sketches of chemists and procedures for a few experiments
Graphene and its fascinating attributes ( )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Graphene, a single sheet of graphite, has an unconventional electronic structure that can be described in terms of massless Dirac Fermions. This interesting electronic feature is not only an important fundamental issue in condensed matter physics but also holds future promise in post-Si electronic/spintronics device applications. Graphene is the most fundamental building block, with which a variety of carbon-based materials such as graphite, fullerene and carbon nanotubes can be created. The diverse chemical, electronic and magnetic properties of nanographene and graphene are mainly due to their geometrical electronic structure. This book presents the frontiers of graphene research ranging from important issues in condensed matter physics and chemistry to advanced device applications
Nanotubes and nanowires by C. N. R Rao ( )
25 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Research and literature on nanomaterials has exploded in volume in recent years. Nanotubes (both of carbon and inorganic materials) can be made in a variety of ways, and they demonstrate a wide range of interesting properties. Many of these properties, such as high mechanical strength and interesting electronic properties relate directly to potential applications. Nanowires have been made from a vast array of inorganic materials and provide great scope for further research into their properties and possible applications. This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of the research areas of carbon nanotubes, inorganic nanotubes and nanowires including: synthesis; characterisation; properties; applications Nanotubes and Nanowires includes an extensive list of references and is ideal both for graduates needing an introduction to the field of nanomaterials as well as for professionals and researchers in academia and industry
New directions in solid state chemistry : structure, synthesis, properties, reactivity and materials design by C. N. R Rao ( Book )
24 editions published between 1986 and 1997 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this new edition the authors have taken the opportunity to bring the work completely up to date by the addition of new material on mesoporous materials, fullerenes, molecular magnets, organic conductors and high-temperature superconductors. All of the chapters have been revised with new additional sections." "In recent years, solid state chemistry has emerged as a very important element of mainstream chemistry and modern materials science. Students, teachers and researchers of condensed matter science and materials science need to understand the chemistry of solids because this plays a crucial role in determining the properties of materials. An understanding of solid state chemistry is also essential in materials design. For example, innovative ways of preparing unusual solids chemically have been discovered, often giving rise to metastable materials which could not otherwise be made. Many fascinating relationships between the structure and properties of solids that help in the design of materials have been discovered by chemists. The authors survey the highlights of this vital area of chemistry by citing the most recent examples, case studies and references. Not only does the book bring out the essence of the subject, it will also help the reader understand the subject in all its breadth and depth." "This text requires only an understanding of basic physics, chemistry and crystallography. It will be of value to advanced students and researchers studying solid state chemistry as a text and reference work."--Jacket

Nanocrystals synthesis, properties and applications by C. N. R Rao ( )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nanocrystals is an up-to-date monograph on an important aspect of nanoscience and technology. It opens with an elegant introduction including a brief historical account. Emphasis is then given to diverse synthetic methods, both chemical and physical, in addition to modern hybrid methods. The orientation shifts gradually to properties of nanocrystals that evolve with size; detailed discussions are to be found on mesoscalar assemblies in different dimensions, special cases of core-shell and magic nuclearity nanocrystals. The authors also address applications of nanocrystals, carefully separating out potential applications and those that have already emerged, and cite around 900 references from the literature, most from the last decade. Tables providing information at a glance and schematic diagrams, at relevant places, make the monograph appealing to read. Occasionally, the reader is reminded of the contributions of celebrated past masters such as Michael Faraday. In summary, the monograph serves as a general introduction as well as a handy reference for the entire community of researchers and practitioners."--Jacket
