Transition metal oxides have recently been the subject of enormous activity within both the applied and basic science communities. However, the overwhelming balance of interest was devoted to 3delements and their binary compounds for many decades, extending from the 19th to the late 20th Century. The strong magnetic and elastic properties of these materials were key to various technologies, although the relatively robust superconducting properties of several Nb intermetallic compounds (e.g., Nb3Sn, NbTi) shifted some attention toward the 4d-elements during the 1960’s.
