Book Description

The range of materials science is very vast, and its development is proportionally rapid. This book picks up and explains various topics of materials science using figures and chemical formulae for readers who have a knowledge of chemistry at the undergraduate level. In order to view the progress of materials science, the book is divided into four parts, the first three of which relate topics concerning typical elements, transition elements, and lanthanide and actinide. The fourth section details innovative issues in materials science.
