Synopsis: Lately, there has been much interest in the chemistry of Main Group elements with novel compounds being synthesised both in academia and industry. This book examines their synthesis, structure and how they behave chemically.
The second edition follows the same structure as the first except that the biochemistry section has been removed to allow for the inclusion of a wide range of new material. This includes:
* complexation and the stabilization of unstable species;
* new elements and isotopes;
* discussion of, for example, pye-bonding in compounds of the heavier main group elements, electronegativity of F, bonding in sulfur and phosphorus oxo-anions;
* examples of new compounds developed around traditional models; for example, compounds in which multiply-bonded C is replaced by Si and pentavalent organo-derivatives of Group 15
All other information is fully revised and updated in the light of more recent data. Where relevant, the author indicates where gaps exist in current knowledge and offers non-typical examples which are at the limits of current research.
The new edition is aimed at Honors and postgraduate students as well as researchers interested in Main Group elements and their compounds.
On the first edition -
"This is a book I would recommend as background reading for undergraaduates and postgraduates" Education in Chemistry, Chemistry in Britain
"This is a sound and sensible book, coherently produced and well written" The Times Higher Educational Supplement
Review: "Massey's book is a very reader-friendly aid to gaining a comprehensive understanding of the chemistry of the s- and p-block elements." (Angewandte Chemie - International Edition, Vol.40 No.16, 2001) "In summary, this is a good textbook for the advanced reader." (The Alchemist, 16th March 2001)
