About the book

The research and investigation of alkaline materials is a field of intense activity including several disciplines, in particular in solid-state chemistry, etc. These materials exhibit interesting physical properties, electrical, magnetic, optical, and catalytic processes. These materials can be in the form of crystallized solid, amorphous solid or semi-crystalline solid, etc. In this context, this book is dedicated to the description of the most adopted methods of synthesis of different types of alkaline materials. The second part comprises the characterization and identification of alkaline materials in order to determine the composition and structure of the studied material. The remarkable physical properties (electrical, magnetic, optical, catalytic, and others) will be the objectives of the third party.

Factors influencing the physical properties of the studied materials such as porosity, microstructure, reaction environment, and others, can be discussed in this book. The theoretical calculation methods of modeling and simulation can be used to interpret and appreciate the correlation between composition, structure, and physical properties. Based on these physical properties, it is best to select materials suitable for use in industry: Application of the studied alkali material.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
