Alwyn G. Davies has updated the contents of his book to reflect the current state of research into organotin chemistry. He covers all aspects in detail, such as its synthesis, characterization, structures and applications, while also devoting space to such hot topics as environmental issues.
This new edition also includes a CD–ROM with more than 5,000 references, making this database an invaluable tool for everyone working in the field.
"The text is well written, extremely accessible and very comprehensive: particularly impressive is the inclusion of up–to–the–minute references in these areas....
The text manages to reach a good (interdisciplinary) balance of material, making it of interest to both inorganic specialists wanting to broaden their understanding of organic synthesis and organic specialists interested in a more detailed understanding of structural aspects of organotin compounds that they are likely to encounter. ..."
"....This is a conventional book in the best sense...
The standard of production is very good, with well–structured tables and an abundance of clear formula schemas, which enable the reader to quickly grasp the essence of the text. Therefore I have no hesitation in recommending this book for all organic and organometallic chemists engaged in synthetic work."
