The interest and collaboration of members of the former Commission II.3 of the IUPAC Inorganic Chemistry Division is acknowledged. The following colleagues expert in the field of high temperature materials chemistry contributed with comments and suggestions: Dario Beruto, Christian Chatillon, Guido Gigli, Daniele Gozzi, Suzana Gomez Fries, John Hastie, Don Hildenbrand, Nathan S. Jacobson, Adolf Mikula, Paul Nordine, Enrica Ricci, Alan Searcy, Giorgio Spinolo, Rick Weber, Anthony R. West . Discussions of GB with the late Paul Gilles on teaching high
temperature phenomena were stimulating.
