Comprehensive Coordination Chemistry II (CCC II) is the sequel to what has become a classic in the field, Comprehensive Coordination Chemistry, published in 1987. CCC II builds on the first and surveys new developments authoritatively in over 200 newly comissioned chapters, with an emphasis on current trends in biology, materials science and other areas of contemporary scientific interest.

About the Editor-in-Chief

Edwin Constable


"This authoritative work, though expensive, will remain valuable for many years. It is appropriate, however, only for graduate-level collections in chemistry where this topic is of particular interest--which can easily be determined by observing the wear on the earlier set. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students." --D. Goodman, Princeton University, CHOICE July 2004

"Comprehensive Coordination Chemistry II provides far more cutting-edge data than any other books on the subject and is the first place to consult before undertaking research in the field. Its informative, critical assessments and suggestions of gaps in existing knowledge make it the primary reference source for chemists from academic, industrial, or governmental laboratories as well as students and other persons interested in coordination chemistry. I heartily recommend it." --George B. Kauffman, California State University, Fresno, CHEMICAL EDUCATOR, Vol. 10, No. 1, 2005

These volumes should be of use to new and established researchers for some years to come. Whatever the content, the enormous lists of literature citations in CCCII are likely to be of value for some years to come. The reviewers concur that the volumes have been produced to a high standard, and that every chemistry library should have a copy available." --G.J. Leigh, University of Sussex, Brighton, JOURNAL OF ORGANOMETALLIC CHEMISTRY, Vol. 689, 2004
