Ilie Murgulescu Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Romanian Academy

Speranta Tanasescu, PhD, is Senior Researcher I and head of the Laboratory of Chemical Thermodynamics in the “Ilie Murgulescu” Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Romanian Academy, Bucharest. Dr. Tanasescu obtained a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the Romanian Academy in 1979 and has served as a supervisor in chemistry since 2002. She received the “Gh. Spacu” Award from the Romanian Academy in 1972. Her thematic research focuses on activities with impact in the following domains: materials science, nanoscience and nanotechnologies, new sources of energies, nanosafety, and nanomedicine. Her research is significant for understanding processing-structure relationships as well as for finding key parameters in relation to bio-reactivity of the nanomaterials with impact in both nanosafety and nanomedicine research.

The interrelation among composition, microstructure, and properties of stoichiometric and nonstoichiometric compounds is a major field of research for both scientific and technological reasons. As such, this book focuses on metal oxides, which present a large diversity of electrical, magnetic, optical, optoelectronic, thermal, electrochemical, and catalytic properties, making them suitable for a wide range of applications. By bringing together scientific contributions with special emphasis on the interrelations between materials chemistry, processing, microstructures, and properties of stoichiometric and nonstoichiometric metal oxides, this book highlights the importance of tightly integrating high-throughput experiments (including both synthesis and characterization) and efficient and robust theory for the design of advanced materials.
