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.
