Topological surface states, a new kind of electronic state of matter, have recently been observed on the cleaved surfaces of crystals of a handful of small band gap semiconductors. The goals of this review are to briefly introduce the physics of topological insulators to a chemical audience and to describe the chemistry, defect chemistry, and crystal structures of the compounds in this emergent field.

The advent of X-ray diffraction in the early twentieth century transformed crystallography to a highly interdisciplinary field which now includes nearly all life and physical sciences as well as materials science and engineering.

Crystallographic methods are used in chemistry for two main purposes: the identification of solid substances, and the determination of atomic configurations. There are also other applications. This book is a guide to these methods.
