Second Supplements to the 2nd Edition of Rodd's Chemistry of Carbon Compounds, Volume III: Aromatic Compounds spans several very important areas of aromatic chemistry. It contains five chapters (Chapters 8-12) devoted to benzoquinone, nitro compounds, metallo derivatives, and aromatic hydrocarbons.
The book begins with a chapter containing literature on benzoquinones and related compounds published from the 1970s to mid-1994. Subsequent chapters cover materials on derivatives of benzenoid hydrocarbons with substituents containing a single nitrogen atom; aromatic compounds of the non-transition metals; aromatic compounds of the transition elements; and nuclear substituted benzenoid hydrocarbons with more than one nitrogen atom in the substituent.
