The serious study of the reaction mechanisms of transition metal com plexes began some five decades ago. Work was initiated in the United States and Great Britain; the pioneers ofthat era were, inalphabetical order, F. Basolo, R. E. Connick, 1. O. Edwards, C. S. Garner, G. P.Haight, W. C. E. Higgision, E.1. King, R. G. Pearson, H. Taube, M.1. Tobe, and R. G. Wilkins.A larger community of research scientists then entered the field, many of them stu dents ofthose just mentioned. Interest spread elsewhere as well, principally to Asia, Canada, and Europe. Before long, the results ofindividual studies were being consolidated into models, many of which traced their origins to the better-established field of mechanistic organic chemistry. For a time this sufficed, but major revisions and new assignments of mechanism became necessary for both ligand sub stitution and oxidation-reduction reactions. Mechanistic inorganic chemistry thus took on a shape of its own. This process has brought us to the present time. Interests have expanded both to include new and more complex species (e.g., metalloproteins) and a wealth of new experimental techniques that have developed mechanisms in ever-finer detail. This is the story the author tells, and in so doing he weaves in the identities of the investigators with the story he has to tell. This makes an enjoyable as well as informative reading.
Offers complete coverage of basic inorganic reaction mechanisms that brings readers up to date on developments in the field. Mechanistic concepts introduced will provoke consideration of larger categories of inorganic reactions without the need for expert knowledge. Theoretical and experimental methods are described, as well as the possibilities offered by each technique, the kind of information obtained, the limitations of each, and methods for handling experimental data. Carefully clarifies the relationship between mechanism and kinetics, and corresponding concepts. Features a chapter on inorganic photochemistry and the related energy conversion--a branch of inorganic reaction mechanisms that is making rapid advances.
Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage of progress in the major areas of chemical research. Written by experts in their specialist fields the series creates a unique service for the active research chemist, supplying regular critical in-depth accounts of progress in particular areas of chemistry. For over 80 years the Royal Society of Chemistry and its predecessor, the Chemical Society, have been publishing reports charting developments in chemistry, which originally took the form of Annual Reports. However, by 1967 the whole spectrum of chemistry could no longer be contained within one volume and the series Specialist Periodical Reports was born. The Annual Reports themselves still existed but were divided into two, and subsequently three, volumes covering Inorganic, Organic and Physical Chemistry. For more general coverage of the highlights in chemistry they remain a 'must'. Since that time the SPR series has altered according to the fluctuating degree of activity in various fields of chemistry. Some titles have remained unchanged, while others have altered their emphasis along with their titles; some have been combined under a new name whereas others have had to be discontinued. The current list of Specialist Periodical Reports can be seen on the inside flap of this volume.
This comprehensive series of volumes on inorganic chemistry provides inorganic chemists with a forum for critical, authoritative evaluations of advances in every area of the discipline. Every volume reports recent progress with a significant, up-to-date selection of papers by internationally recognized researchers, complemented by detailed discussions and complete documentation. Each volume features a complete subject index and the series includes a cumulative index as well.
The reading journey of this book starts with very important phenomenon in inorganic chemistry known as the Trans effect. The Trans effect then leads to a very fascinating discovery that changed the whole world. That was the discovery of the anti-cancer drug. The story of its invention is really interesting. This will really trigger the minds of students that how inventions are made. This will show you how one invention leads path to the other. This book introduces the work of Nobel Prize winners and scientist who dedicated their whole life for the sake of chemistry. Henry Taube was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work on complexes & outer and inner sphere reaction mechanism. This book introduces his work. Rudolf A. Marcus received Nobel Prize for his work on redox reactions in complexes. This book discusses the basic principles of redox reactions in complexes. Transition metal complexes plays a fundamental role in three important areas. (1) Bioinorganic chemistry (2) Medicinal chemistry (3) Industrial chemistry. The study of the mechanism helps in designing new inorganic materials, new inorganic catalysts, and new inorganic medicines and for understanding the biological processes. This is a simple book discussing basic principles of inorganic reaction mechanisms. Further, we have provided minor information about basic bioinorganic reactions, nuclear reactions and the chain reaction mechanism. The phenomenon such as acid rain has also been discussed. The last chapter classifies the reactions of metal complexes. Hope this book will be useful for science graduates and post graduates and also for the engineering students.
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 inverted electron-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 and gas/liquid/solid systems and methods of determining heterogeneity.
This text provides a general background as a course module in the area of inorganic reaction mechanisms, suitable for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate study and/or research. The topic has important research applications in the metallurgical industry and is of interest in the science of biochemistry, biology, organic, inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry. In addition to coverage of substitution reactions in four-, five- and six-coordinate complexes, the book contains further chapters devoted to isomerization and racemization reactions, to the general field of redox reactions, and to the reactions of coordinated ligands. It is relevant in other fields such as organic, bioinorganic and biological chemistry, providing a bridge to organic reaction mechanisms. The book also contains a chapter on the kinetic background to the subject with many illustrative examples which should prove useful to those beginning research.
