Metal alkoxides and metal aryloxides have been the subject of intense activity in recent years, both in research and in industrial applications. In this book the authors, who are all acknowledged experts in the field, provide a comprehensive account of all aspects of this fascinating area. The book is based on Metal Alkoxides (Academic Press, 1978) and has been updated and expanded to include metal aryloxides. The book includes an immense amount of data on metal alkoxides and aryloxides, including structural details in tabular form for easy reference. Readers will find this an invaluable reference source that reflects the enormous growth in interest in this field in recent years. Alkoxo and Aryloxo Derivatives of Metals will appeal to a wide-ranging audience, including: · University Researchers and Chemistry Graduate Students; · Researchers in industrial laboratories concerned with: microelectronics, ceramics, glasses and other advanced novel materials; · Any laboratories doing research on non-linear optical materials, high-temperature superconductors, ceramic materials, and specialized glasses; · As a supplementary text for Final Year Courses in Advanced Inorganic Chemistry, e.g. Metallo-Organic Chemistry. The book details: · Synthesis and characterization · Physical and chemical properties of alkoxo and aryloxo derivatives of metals · Heterometal alkoxides and metal oxoalkoxides of industrial importance The book covers applications in: · microelectronics · ceramics · non-linear optical materials · high-temperature superconductors · specialized glasses · other advanced novel materialsBradley, Don is the author of 'Alkoxo and Aryloxo Derivatives of Metals' with ISBN 9780121241407 and ISBN 0121241408.
