Solid State Chemistry

Solid-state chemistry deals with the design, synthesis and characterization of solid-state inorganic materials. SAES exploits it to manage multiphase solid-state reactions among one or more solid phases.

This requires a deep knowledge of the chemical composition, structure, thermodynamical properties and kinetics aspects involved in the reactions. The screening of new materials and new formulations take advantage of the excellent competence in computational thermodynamics available at the Corporate R&D.


Evaporable getters, mercury dispensers, alkali metal dispensers are examples of products based on solid-state reactions that we may represent as: A(s) + B(s) → C(s) + D(g) where (s) stands for solid and (g) stands for gas.
