Volatile Silicon Compounds tackles the properties of volatile silicon compounds from both organic and inorganic perspectives. The title integrates the discussion on molecular structure and chemical properties. The opening chapter provides an introductory discourse on atomic properties. Next, the selection seals with SiH bond and the halides of silicon. The subsequent chapters discuss compounds containing silicon bound to various elemental groups. The text also covers other silicon compounds, such pseudohalogen derivatives and metal derivatives of silanes. The book will be of great use to students of chemistry related degrees.
