About this Book
Interest in nanoporous crystals as host-guest systems has risen dramatically over the past few years, such that this fascinating class of substances now plays an important role not only in material sciences, but also in numerous other disciplines, such as organic or supramolecular chemistry. With their unique characteristics, nanoporous crystals offer a wide range of possible applications: They are used as molecular sieves or membranes as well as catalytic converters. This work presents the very first overview of this exciting field.
Readers will find everything they need to know about these unusual materials, with all their many attributes:
· Synthesis of host-guest systems
· Description of the structural and dynamic aspects
· Electronic and optical characteristics of the materials
· Possible applications.
An indispensable reference for materials scientists as well as for catalytic and inorganic chemists, and all those working in the field.
