Vaughan review electrochemistry and its application to synthesis and chemistry of coordination compounds.
Work has been done on the transinfluence in Pt(II) chemistry, and there is an interest in the molecular mechanism of carcinostatic drugs which are coordination compounds, with particular emphasis on the field of Pt(II) chemistry centred around cis-(Pt2Cl2(NH3)2) and the Cu(II) thiosemicarbazone area.
The Sixth Edition of this classic work comprises the most comprehensive and current guide to infrared and Raman spectra of inorganic, organometallic, bioinorganic, and coordination compounds.
With its emphasis on coordination chemistry but coverage of bioinorganic chemistry and instrumental analysis as well, the authors describe the history of early developments in inorganic chemistry and include five experiments with each topic, covering Werner's notion and the synthesis and analysis of cobalt ammine coordination compounds, molecular geometry and stability through solid and solution phase analysis, substitution reactions, electron transfer reactions, metals in medicine (including the synthesis and biological reactivity of a platinum anti-cancer drug), metals in environmental bioremediation and in molecular biology, and oxidation of a natural production by a catalyst.
He is the author of Infrared and Raman Spectra of Inorganic and Coordination compounds, Fifth Edition (Wiley).
The subsequent chapters deal with the the specifics of chirality as it applies to transition metals, including examples of: chirality at metal, half sandwich compounds, chirality in tetrahedral, alkyne complexes, chiral-at-metal complexes in organic synthesis, including Gladysz, Davies and Libeskind, chiral complexes, homogeneous catalysis by chiral complexes, chiral recognition in coordination compounds, chirality in supramolecular coordination compounds - the new field of chiral materials, including chiral metal conductors and chiral networks based on optically active bricks.
This guide to assigning a name and formula to an inorganic substance introduces the compositional, substitutive, and additive systems of nomenclature, and applies them to inorganic acids and derivatives, coordination compounds, and solids.
