Carboranes, Third Edition, by Russell Grimes, is the definitive resource on the subject. Completely updated with a wealth of research and review articles published in this active field since the previous volume was released in 2011, the book provides a readable and concise introduction to the basic principles underlying the synthesis, structures, and reactions of carboranes, heterocarboranes, and metallacarboranes. Following the valuable foundational information, the book explores the advances in practical applications for the many areas in which experts have discovered that carboranes afford new possibilities for solving problems and advancing the science. These disciplines include polymer science, catalysis, biomedicine, nanomaterials, and others.
- Winner of a 2017 Textbook Excellence Award (Texty) from the Textbook and Academic Authors Association
- Includes over 2,000 molecular structure drawings throughout the text
- Features expanded coverage on applications of carboranes, particularly in biomedicine and nanomaterials, given the growth of research in these areas
- Presents extended and updated tables, listing thousands of compounds with key literature references, provided online via the book’s website
- Explores the advances in practical applications for the many areas in which experts have discovered that carboranes afford new possibilities for solving problems and advancing the science

Russell N. Grimes is Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the University of Virginia, where he taught inorganic chemistry from 1963 to 2003 and mentored the research of 75 graduate students and postdoctoral associates as well as numerous undergraduates. He was a pioneer in the development of boron hydride and boron cluster chemistry and is author or co-author of over 240 peer-reviewed journal articles and review chapters. He has authored or edited four books, including "Carboranes" (1970), "Carboranes, Second Edition" (2011), "Metal Interactions with Boron Clusters" (1982), and "Inorganic Syntheses Volume 26" (1989), and wrote the chapter on Boron in "Advanced Inorganic Chemistry, Sixth Edition" by Cotton, Wilkinson, Murillo, and Bochmann (1999). He is a native of Pennsylvania and earned a B.S. Chemistry degree at Lafayette College and a Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Minnesota, the research for which was conducted at Harvard University under the guidance of W N. Lipscomb followed by postdoctoral work under M. F. Hawthorne at the University of California at Riverside. He has been a Senior Fulbright Scholar at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, a Humboldt Scholar and Guest Professor at Heidelberg University in Germany, and a Visiting Scholar at the Korea Advanced Institute for Science and Technology. He is a six-time American Chemical Society Tour Speaker and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
