Part of the Topics in Inorganic Chemistry series


  • Information


This third edition retains the general level and scope of earlier editions, but has been substantially updated with over 900 new references covering the literature through 2005, and 140 more pages of text than the previous edition.

In addition to the general updating of materials, there is new or greatly expanded coverage of topics such as Curtin-Hammett conditions, pressure effects, metal hydrides and asymmetric hydrogenation catalysts, the invertedelectron-transfer region, intervalence electron transfer, photochemistry of metal carbonyls, methyl transferase and nitric oxide synthase.

The new chapter on heterogeneous systems introduces the basic background to this industrially important area.

The emphasis is on inorganic examples of gas/liquid andgas/liquid/solid systems and methods of determining heterogeneity.
