Multinary oxides, especially the oxides of first row transition metals constitute a remarkably versatile and prolific class of materials of technological importance. The alkalioxometallates have continued to play a major role in the fields of high temperature superconductivity (HTSC) and colossal magneto resistivity (CMR), or more recently, multiferroics, thermoelectricity, spintronics and battery related materials. Solid state chemists relentlessly try to obtain structure-property relations of solids so as to be able to design better materials towards desired properties for prospective technological applications.
