This book offers a comprehensive overview of the rapidly developing field of cluster science. In an interdisciplinary approach, basic concepts, as well as recent developments in research and practical applications, are discussed by leading authors. Topics covered include "naked" metal clusters, clusters stabilized by ligands, clusters in solids and colloids. The reader will find answers to questions like: How many metal atoms must a particle have to exhibit metallic properties?; How can the large specific surface of clusters and colloids be employed in catalysts?; How can metal clusters be introduced into solid hosts?; and which effects are responsible for the transition from isolated to condensed clusters?
General Introduction; Electronic Structure of Metal Clusters and Cluster Compounds; Physics and Chemistry of Isolated Clusters; Ligand Stabilized Metal Clusters; Clusters in Cages; Condensed Metal Clusters; Colloids; Perspectives.
