Complete Encyclopedia of Coordination Chemistry III, 9-volume set (2021)

DUBLIN, November 25, 2021– (COMMERCIAL THREAD)–The “Global coordination chemistry III. Edition n ° 3” Elsevier Science and Technology book has been added to offer.

Complete Coordination Chemistry III, set of nine volumes describes the fundamentals of metal-ligand interactions, provides an overview of the systematic chemistry of this class of compounds, and details their importance in the processes of life, medicine, industry, and materials science. This new edition spans 9 volumes, 185 entries and 6600 printed pages.

Complete Coordination Chemistry III isn’t just an update to the second edition, it includes a significant amount of new content. In descriptive sections 3 to 6, the focus is on material that has appeared in the primary and secondary journal literature since the publication of the previous edition. The material in the other sections is newly written, with an emphasis on modern aspects of coordination chemistry and the latest developments.

The metal-ligand interaction is the link between the awarding of the 1913 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Alfred Werner, the father of coordination chemistry, the 1987 Prize for Supramolecular Chemistry and the 2016 Prize for Molecular Machines.

The key role of coordination chemistry in the assembly of nano- and micro-dimensioned hierarchical structures is at the heart of these applications and thus this major reference work links several sub-disciplines of chemistry, thus targeting a truly interdisciplinary audience.
