This volume of the Handbook adds five new chapters to the science of rare earths. Two of the chapters deal with intermetallic compounds. An overview of ternary systems containing rare earths, transition metals and indium Chapter 218 opens the volume. It is followed by Chapter 219 sorting out relationships between superconductivity and magnetism. The next two chapters are dedicated to complex compounds of rare earths: Chapter 220 describes structural studies using circularly polarized luminescence spectroscopy of lanthanide systems, while Chapter 221 examines rare-earth metal-organic frameworks, also known as coordination polymers. The final Chapter 222 deals with the catalytic activity of rare earths in site-selective hydrolysis of DNA and RNA. Ya. Kalychak, V. Zaremba, R. P�ttgen, M. Lukachuk, and R.-D. Hoffmann review the synthesis conditions, isothermal sections of phase diagrams, crystallography and basic physical properties of ternary intermetallic compounds consisting of the rare-earth metals, transition metals and indium. P. Thalmeier and G. Zwicknagl revisit the last decade of research uncovering some of the mysteries of the superconducting state, especially those related to heavy fermion superconductivity and the co-existence of the superconducting and exotic magnetically ordered states.
