In this talk I will provide some new insights into the material exploratory synthesis and the crystal growth of various intermetallic and oxide compounds, including high-temperature copper-based superconductors, magnesium diboride, pyrochlores, ternary perovskite-based superconductors, Fe-based pnictides, and two-dimensional van der Waals semiconductors.  The availability of high-quality single crystals has proved crucial in investigating their intrinsic magnetic, electronic and thermodynamic properties as well as in the realistic assessment of their potential for applications. One of the emphases of the research is to explore the revealing role of high pressure and combinatorial solid state chemistry methods in the synthesis of new functional materials.
