Key Features

· Gives a unifying description of very many different phenomena and systems
· High-Tc superconductors, conjugated polymers, gold nanowires, carbon nanotubes, chain compounds, and charge-transfer salts are all treated in one volume
· Illustrates the very broad range of quasi-one-dimensional systems

Description

The present book describes a large variety of different types of chain systems (nanowires), including shorter chains that are artificially produced for instance in break-junction experiments, chains synthesized as guests inside the channels of a host crystal, crystalline chain compounds, organic polymers (synthetic metals), and charge-transfer salts, thus covering an unusual wealth of systems. Both experimental and theoretical studies are discussed. Particular emphasis is put on illustrating the special phenomena that occur in such quasi-one-dimensional systems, and how theoretical and experimental efforts have been used in identifying those properties that are specific for truly one-dimensional systems from those of quasi-one-dimensional systems. Moreover, it is shown that metallic chains can be found in a large range of systems, but also that chains of metals not always are metallic.

Michael Springborg

Since almost 25 years I have been working on theoretical studies of electronic and structural properties of atoms, molecules, clusters, colloids, polymers, chain compounds, surfaces, and crystals. I have an interdisciplinary background combining experience in chemistry and physics. My research has resulted in about 150 scientific papers and 2 textbooks.

Yi Dong

I have a background in technical / applied chemistry but since five years been working on theoretical studies of electronic and structural properties of nanoparticles and chain compounds. Yi Dong and Michael Springborg are married to each other.
