This book describes the bond valence model, a description of acid-base bonding which is becoming increasingly popular particularly in fields such as materials science and mineralogy where solid state inorganic chemistry is important. Recent improvements in crystal structure determination have allowed the model to become more quantitative. Unlike other models of inorganic chemical bonding, the bond valence model is simple, intuitive, and predictive, and can be used for analysing crystal structures and the conceptual modelling of local as well as extended structures. This is the first book to explore in depth the theoretical basis of the model and to show how it can be applied to synthetic and solution chemistry. It emphasizes the separate roles of the constraints of chemistry and of three-dimensional space by analysing the chemistry of solids. Many applications of the model in physics, materials science, chemistry, mineralogy, soil science, surface science, and molecular biology are reviewed. The final chapter describes how the bond valence model relates to and represents a simplification of other models of inorganic chemical bonding.

“It is simple, quantitative, intuitive, and predictive – no more than a pocket calculator is needed to calculate it. Current Engineering Practice This is the first book to explore the theoretical basis of the model and to show how it can be applied to synthetic and solution chemistry … neatly crystallizes concepts, precisely defines these concepts and brings to the fore many phenomena that can be described by the bond-valence model. The book is ably supplemented by a list of 300 references. Current Engineering Practice … there has long been a need for a dedicated monograph on the subject … a highly readable book about a theory that, though it has long found application in inorganic crystal chemistry, deserves to be used more widely.” Crystallography News
