The metal chalcogenides form a vast, almost infinite area of research. It is practically impossible in a single review to cover all aspects of this chemistry, including synthesis, crystal and electronic structure, physical properties of the solids, chemical properties, and applications. The task is made easier since reviews devoted to different aspects of the metal chalcogenide chemistry have been appearing continuously in an attempt to keep up with the new compounds while the synthesis and characterization of new TM chalcogenides (including relatively simple binary chalcogenides) continues unabated.
