Designed as a benchtop tool, the series includes detailed and reliable experimental procedures for the preparation of common but imp ortant starting compounds, organized according to the periodic table. Properties of the compounds and additional references are also provided. In most cases, no strict borderline has been drawn between inorganic and organometallic compounds. Instead, the material is conveniently presented so that for every group of elements, the various aspects of the chemistry are combined. Several hundred in ternational specialists with established expertise in their respective fields have contributed, resulting in proven and reliable pre parations. In view of the enormous growth of organometallic chemistry, Synthetic Methods of Organometallic and Inorganic Chemistry p rovides you with a balanced compilation of carefully selected and representative examples for all classes of compounds. // The conte nt of this e-book was originally published in 1997.
For the first time the discipline of modern inorganic chemistry has been systematized according to a plan constructed by a council of editorial advisors and consultants, among them three Nobel laureates (E.O. Fischer, H. Taube and G. Wilkinson). Rather than producing a collection of unrelated review articles, the series creates a framework which reflects the creative potential of this scientific discipline. Thus, it stimulates future development by identifying areas which are fruitful for further research. The work is indexed in a unique way by a structured system which maximizes its useful.

The Chemistry of Organic Sulfur Compounds deals with the chemistry of organic sulfur compounds such as thiocyanates, 1-alkynyl thioethers, thiols, and olefins. Topics covered range from the mechanisms of Raney nickel desulfuration to olefin sulfide chemistry, desulfonylation reactions, and alkaline decomposition of aliphatic disulfides. The reaction of cyanide with cystine and cystine peptides is also discussed. This volume is comprised of 15 chapters and begins with an introduction to electron correlation and bond properties in some selected sulfur compounds including thionyl and sulfuryl fluoride. The following chapters explore the mechanisms of Raney nickel desulfuration; isomerization of organic thiocyanates; polyfluoroalkyl derivatives of sulfur; anionic oxidation of thiols and co-oxidation of thiols with olefins; and the chemistry of the 1,2-sithiole ring. Thiohydantoins, thiophosgene, and the alkaline decomposition of aliphatic disulfides are also considered. The final chapter is devoted to oxidation of disulfides, with special reference to cystine. This book will be a useful resource for organic chemists.
