When a correlation between the chemical structure and a physical
property of a material is postulated, measurements on compounds
exhibiting a range of structural variations are required to establish its
validity and, ultimately, to optimize performance for an
application. Yet the controlled modification of inorganic structures
remains, in many instances, an open challenge. Our research is
directed toward developing general strategies for the synthesis of
inorganic clusters and solids.
