<em>Comprehensive Inorganic Chemistry II</em> reviews and examines topics of relevance to today’s inorganic chemists. Covering more interdisciplinary and high impact areas, <em>Comprehensive Inorganic Chemistry II</em> includes biological inorganic chemistry, solid state chemistry, materials chemistry, and nanoscience. The work is designed to follow on, with a different viewpoint and format, from our 1973 work, Comprehensive Inorganic Chemistry, edited by Bailar, Emeléus, Nyholm, and Trotman-Dickenson, which has received over 2,000 citations. The new work will also complement other recent Elsevier works in this area, <em>Comprehensive Coordination Chemistry</em> and <em>Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry</em>, to form a trio of works covering the whole of modern inorganic chemistry. Chapters are designed to provide a valuable, long-standing scientific resource for both advanced students new to an area and researchers who need further background or answers to a particular problem on the elements, their compounds, or applications. Chapters are written by teams of leading experts, under the guidance of the Volume Editors and the Editors-in-Chief. The articles are written at a level that allows undergraduate students to understand the material, while providing active researchers with a ready reference resource for information in the field. The chapters will not provide basic data on the elements, which is available from many sources (and the original work), but instead concentrate on applications of the elements and their compounds.View full description
Intended for (under)graduate students in (inorganic) chemistry who need to understand inorganic chemistry and its related areas; and for active researchers who are in need of a comprehensive reference resource.
