Electrical Conductivity and Chemical Bonding in Crystalline, Glassy, and Liquid Phases

  • H. Krebs


A qualitative quantum-mechanical treatment is given of the mechanism of chemical bonding in crystalline, glassy, and liquid phases. It is shown that the electrical properties of some substances can be explained on the basis of a relationship between the number of valence electrons, the number and kind of orbitals, and the overlap of the orbitals.
