Advanced Inorganic Chemistry 6TH Editionby F Albert Cotton
Synopses & Reviews
For more than a quarter century, Cotton and Wilkinson's Advanced Inorganic Chemistry has been the source that students and professional chemists have turned to for the background needed to understand current research literature in inorganic chemistry and aspects of organometallic chemistry. Like its predecessors, this updated Sixth Edition is organized around the periodic table of elements and provides a systematic treatment of the chemistry of all chemical elements and their compounds. It incorporates important recent developments with an emphasis on advances in the interpretation of structure, bonding, and reactivity.
From the reviews of the Fifth Edition:
* "The first place to go when seeking general information about the chemistry of a particular element, especially when up-to-date, authoritative information is desired." -Journal of the American Chemical Society.
* "Every student with a serious interest in inorganic chemistry should have [this book]." -Journal of Chemical Education.
* "A mine of information . . . an invaluable guide." -Nature.
* "The standard by which all other inorganic chemistry books are judged."-Nouveau Journal de Chimie.
* "A masterly overview of the chemistry of the elements."-The Times of London Higher Education Supplement.
* "A bonanza of information on important results and developments which could otherwise easily be overlooked in the general deluge of publications." -Angewandte Chemie.
Book News Annotation:
<:st> A fat reference for both student and professional chemists to the background needed to understand the current research literature in inorganic chemistry. Like its predecessors across the last quarter of a century, organized around the periodic table of elements to provided a systematic treatment of the chemistry of all chemical elements and their compounds. Incorporates recent developments, focusing on those relating to the interpretation of structure, bonding, and reactivity. Much of the material that earlier editions presented in chapters on broad classes of compounds such as organometallic or broad topics such as bioinorganic chemistry, has been relocated to rewritten chapters on specific elements or groups of them. Previous editions were cited in .
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This sixth edition of Advanced Inorganic Chemistry is an indispensable work in the field incorporating many new chemical developments, particularly recent theoretical advances in the interpretation of bonding and reactivity in inorganic j compounds. As in previous editions, the chapters devoted to the elements form the core of the book and are covered in sequence of the periodic table.
This edition incorporates many chemical developments, particularly theoretical advances in the interpretation of bonding and reactivity in inorganic compounds. It systematically covers the periodic table and encompasses the chemistry of all chemical elements and their compounds.
* A bonanza of information on important results and developments which could otherwise easily be overlooked in the general deluge of publications. -Angewandte Chemie.
Das Standardlehrbuch der Anorganischen Chemie: Ein unverzichtbares Nachschlagewerk. In dieser 6. Auflage - die erste Neuauflage seit 10 Jahren - wurden die meisten Kapitel zu Spezialthemen herausgenommen und in die elementenbezogenen und einleitenden Kapitel integriert (z.B. bioanorganische und organometallische Chemie). Wie schon bei früheren Auflagen liegt auch hier der Schwerpunkt auf den Elementen. Hauptgruppen- und Übergangselemente werden in der Reihenfolge des Periodensystems behandelt.
