This concise introduction to boranes and metalloboranes employs an informal and straightforward style. The author establishes facts first, and rationalization and theories follow. Ideas of cluster bonding are presented, and the author surveys different approaches to the bonding in clusters, emphasizing the use of frontier molecule orbitals and the construction of clusters from fragments. The application of spectroscopic techniques to the elucidation of cluster structure is discussed, with an emphasis on multinuclear NMR spectroscopy. The second edition includes an update on structural data for boranes and their anions. Sections on spectroscopy and the reactivity of metalloboranes have been slightly expanded and references have been updated.
