Case Study: Non-Stoichiometric Materials

  • Page ID
  • Stoichiometric coefficients are very convenient with normal chemical equations and their reactions. However, these coefficients are inaccurate in certain compounds due to missing or extra atoms of a specific element. In these compounds, we have a special way of writing the formulas to account for the missing/extra particles.
