Characterization of Solids—Chemical Composition

  • W. Wayne Meinke
Part of the Treatise on Solid State Chemistry book series (TSSC, volume 1)


In any series of studies, experimental or theoretical, in the chemistry, the physical chemistry, or the chemical physics of solids it is very important that there be reliable, descriptive, analytical information available about the materials used in the studies.(1,2) Such information is obtained through the process called “characterization,” which has been given the following definition by the National Academy of Sciences—National Research Council Committee on Characterization of the Materials Advisory Board:(3)

“Characterization describes those features of the composition and structure (including defects) of a material that are significant for a particular preparation, study of properties, or use, and suffice for reproduction of the material.”
