About this book

Iron is a versatile element with many natural and synthetic manifestations. This book provides a comprehensive review of the important chemistry of both its elemental and combined forms. The bulk of the book reviews research in inorganic and organometallic chemistry, and spectroscopic methods for the analysis of iron compounds. Industrial uses of iron and its compounds are covered, and the chemistry underpinning the diverse biochemical and pharmaceutical applications is discussed. This book should be of interest to academic and industrial research and development chemists, materials scientists and biochemists; advanced students of chemistry.

All you wanted to know about the chemistry of iron is provided by eight contributed chapters...greatly welcomed for its contribution to the organometallic field. - Organometallic Compounds; Chapters on inorganic iron compounds and spectroscopic methods useful for iron complete the book which has a modest but useful index - Organometallic Compounds; Everything from the industrial history of iron and its inorganic chemistry to the biogical role of the metal is covered in enough detail to keep the straight chemistry undergraduate intrigued and to add chemical interest to a background reading list for geologists, metallurgists and biologists alike. - New Scientist; This [book] has been waiting to be written for years ... tremendously useful to a wide range of readers and researchers. - Education in Chemistry; Chemistry of ironprovides a skillful survey...a spread of topics conveying a true impression of the chemistry, and short articles of wide disparity...the book succeeds ingiving a clear and scholarly overview of its field. - Chemistry & Industry - London; This book is a timely collection of articles covering aspects of iron...and methods of metal protection. It is effectively written and provides just the right amount of information for undergraduates...the book should find a place on library shelves and will be a significant source of reference. - Chemistry in Britain
