Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry, Second Edition deals with the nomenclature of boron hydrides and higher hydrides of the Group IV–VI elements, organometallic compounds, and polyacids. This book deals with organoboron, organosilicon, and organophosphorus compounds. Organized into 11 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the concept of oxidation number and coordination number, as well as the conventions governing the use of multiplying affixes, enclosing marks, letters, and numbers. This text then discusses the standardization of the formula of inorganic compounds to demonstrate the structural connections between atoms and to provide other comparative chemical information. Other chapters consider nomenclature for radicals and ions. This book discusses as well the nomenclature for binary and pseudobinary acids, oxaacids, peroxoacids, and chloroacids. The final chapter deals with the nomenclature for boron hydrides, boron radicals, and anions and cations derived from the boranes. This book is a valuable resource for organic and inorganic chemists.
