Comprehensive Inorganic Chemistry II - 9780080977744

Comprehensive Inorganic Chemistry IIFrom Elements to Applications, 9 Volume Set2nd Ed. By Jan ReedijkKenneth Poeppelmeier

Comprehensive Inorganic Chemistry II reviews and examines topics of relevance to today’s inorganic chemists. Covering more interdisciplinary and high impact areas, Comprehensive Inorganic Chemistry II 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, Comprehensive Coordination Chemistry and Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry, 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.
  • Provides a comprehensive review which serves to put many advances in perspective and allows the reader to make connections to related fields, such as: biological inorganic chemistry, materials chemistry, solid state chemistry and nanoscience.
  • Inorganic chemistry is rapidly developing, which brings about the need for a reference resource such as this that summarise recent developments and simultaneously provide background information.
  • Forms the new definitive source for researchers interested in elements and their applications; completely replacing the highly cited first edition, which published in 1973.

    About the Author
Jan Reedijk is emeritus Professor of Chemistry at Leiden University and part-time professor of Chemistry at King Saud University Riyadh. He has authored and co-authored over 1100 research papers in molecular inorganic chemistry areas, like coordination chemistry, biomimetic chemistry, anticancer metal compounds and homogeneous catalysis. His work has been honored by a Max Planck Award, and a Royal Knighthood to the order of the Dutch Lion. He is also an elected Member of the Royal Netherland Academy of Sciences, the Academia Europaea and the Finnish Academy of Sciences. He has been a founding editor of the European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, and still belongs to the editorial board of a number of scientific journals. He has been the Executive Secretary of the International Conferences on Coordination Chemistry (1988-2012), and served as chair or on organizing committees of many other international conferences. He is President-elect of the inorganic Chemistry Division of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and has been serving on several IUPAC Committees. He has also been and is still active in a number of European COST actions in Chemistry. For the Royal Netherlands Chemical Society he acted as vice-president and president, and he has also served on the Netherlands Foundation of Chemical Research. During his career he spent sabbatical periods in Cambridge, Strasbourg, Louvain, Münster, Dunedin and Torun. He has been the Director of the Leiden Institute of Chemistry from 1993-2005.
