Transition metal oxides
||It has been suggested that this article be merged into Surface Properties of Transition Metal Oxides. (Discuss) Proposed since September 2013.|
Transition metal oxides comprise a class of materials that contain transition elements and oxygen. They include insulators as well as (poor) metals. Often the same material may display both types of transport properties, hence a Metal-Insulator transition, obtained by varying either temperature or pressure. A number of transition metal oxides are also superconductors.
