Prof. Miguel Angel Alario Franco´s anniversary Special Issue of Journal of Solid State Chemistry

“Synthesis, Structure and Microstructure of novel Non-molecular Materials”, Special Issue of the Journal of Solid State Chemistry is dedicated to Prof. Miguel Ángel Alario-Franco on the occasion of his 80th Birthday.

This is edited by Elizabeth Castillo-Martínez, David Ávila-Brande, Jesús Prado-Gonjal and Elena M. Mesa-Bribián.

Professor Alario-Franco was a pioneer in Solid State Chemistry from the mid-seventies: His notorious contributions to the field encompass the synthesis of novel materials, from room to high pressures and their characterization at the structural and microstructural level by means of TEM/ED and HREM. This implied the setting up of an Electron Microscopy Center and a High-Pressure Laboratory, among the first of its kind in Europe, as well as the training of a significant number of international bright students that are disseminating the knowledge of the Chemistry of Materials and their inherent fundamental properties.
