About this book

Contains biographical chapters on famous chemists, historical and contemporary, in coordination chemistry and chapters describing historical aspects of the field. Examines current issues in isomerism and other aspects of coordination chemistry. Reviews applications of coordination chemistry, including solvent extraction of metals, materials chemistry, and environmental chemistry. Includes contributions from Nobel laureates Glenn T. Seaborg and Linus Pauling, and an introduction by Joseph Chatt. Organized to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the publication of Alfred Werner's coordination theory, the volume's 37 chapters include papers presented at the Coordination Chemistry Symposium as well as additional invited papers.
