Chemical properties of intermetallic compounds

When one is looking for the possibility of intermetallic compounds to be applied either in different fields of material science or at the large industrial scale, the understanding of their chemical behaviour under real conditions is of huge importance. The perfect playground for such study is the field of catalysis, offering the benefit to obtain chemical features of a compound and its catalytic performance at the same time. Starting from scrupulous approach for the synthesis of single-phase materials, followed by detailed analysis of the crystal and electronic structures as well as enhanced insight into the morphological and chemical bonding features, the chemical behaviour as well as catalytic data can be interpreted.
