The Group 13 Metals Aluminium, Gallium, Indium and Thallium: Chemical Patterns and Peculiarities
by:Simon Aldridge, Anthony J. Downs
The last two decades have seen a renaissance in interest in the chemistry of the main group elements. In particular research on the metals of group 13 (aluminium, gallium, indium and thallium) has led to the synthesis and isolation of some very novel and unusual molecules, with implications for organometallic synthesis, new materials development, and with...
The last two decades have seen a renaissance in interest in the chemistry of the main group elements. In particular research on the metals of group 13 (aluminium, gallium, indium and thallium) has led to the synthesis and isolation of some very novel and unusual molecules, with implications for organometallic synthesis, new materials development, and with biological, medical and, environmental relevance.The Group 13 Metals Aluminium, Gallium, Indium and Thalliumaims to cover new facts, developments and applications in the context of more general patterns of physical and chemical behaviour. Particular attention is paid to the main growth areas, including the chemistry of lower formal oxidation states, cluster chemistry, the investigation of solid oxides and hydroxides, advances in the formation of III-V and related compounds, the biological significance of Group 13 metal complexes, and the growing importance of the metals and their compounds in the mediation of organic reactions. Chapters cover:general features of the group 13 elementsgroup 13 metals in the +3 oxidation state: simple inorganic compoundsformal oxidation state +3: organometallic chemistryformal oxidation state +2: metal-metal bonded vs. mononuclear derivativesgroup 13 metals in the +1 oxidation statemixed or intermediate valence group 13 metal compoundsaluminium and gallium clusters: metalloid clusters and their relation to the bulk phases, to naked clusters, and to nanoscaled materialssimple and mixed metal oxides and hydroxides: solids with extended structures of different dimensionalities and porositiescoordination and solution chemistry of the metals: biological, medical and, environmental relevanceIII-V and related semiconductor materialsgroup 13 metal-mediated organic reactionsThe Group 13 Metals Aluminium, Gallium, Indium and Thalliumprovides a detailed, wide-ranging, and up-to-date review of the chemistry of this important group of metals. It will find a place on the bookshelves of practitioners, researchers and students working in inorganic, organometallic, and materials chemistry.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
