Carboranes, moment Edition is designed as a finished resource of knowledge in a box that has skilled huge, immense development in either its primary and utilized facets within the 4 many years because the ebook of Carboranes (1970). in this lengthy interval hundreds of thousands of unique study papers have seemed, in addition to many evaluation articles and booklet chapters facing facets of carborane chemistry. As carborane technological know-how has grown in complexity, and purposes have complex progressively in components resembling drugs, nanostructured and electroactive fabrics, catalysis, polymers, and others, the necessity for a monograph overlaying the full quarter in a unified therapy has develop into more and more apparent.
This quantity has relevant targets, the 1st of that is to supply a readable and concise creation to the fundamental ideas underlying the synthesis, buildings, reactivity, and purposes of carboranes and metallacarboranes at a degree appropriate for readers in and academe who're no longer informed in boron chemistry yet locate themselves operating with, or lecturing approximately carboranes. Secondly, the booklet furnishes a trove of certain details for employees lively in carborane technological know-how and linked applied sciences. subsequently, it accommodates tables directory millions of particular compounds keyed to literature references, including greater than 2,000 molecular constitution drawings that light up the accompanying dialogue. Thorough therapy of the synthesis, buildings, and reactions of carboranes, heterocarboranes, and metallacarboranes within the first thirteen chapters is by way of 4 chapters detailing advances in useful functions in polymer technological know-how, catalysis, drugs, and different parts.
- Includes over 2,000 molecular constitution drawings throughout the text
- Features tables directory millions of compounds with key literature references
