Inorganic and Organometallic Reaction Mechanisms Second Edition Jim D. Atwood Inorganic and Organometallic Reaction Mechanisms, Second Edition covers both classic inorganic reaction mechanisms and organometallic reaction mechanisms. Introductions are provided for each group of reaction mechanisms, and extensive problems (many with references) are offered at the end of each chapter, as are summaries that provide students with thoughtful overviews. In this new edition, references have been updated and new problems have been added to each chapter. Information on NMR techniques and other newer techniques, such as time-resolved infrared spectroscopy, has been added to the chapter on chemical kinetics. The chapter describing ligand substitution reactions on square planar complexes now includes a section on dissociative reactions of square-planar complexes. Significant material on reactions of seventeen electron complexes has been added to the coverage of organometallic substitution reactions, while the material on oxidative-addition and reductive-elimination reactions has been extensively rewritten. The chapter on inorganic electron transfer through inner and outer sphere mechanisms has been augmented by a substantial section on organometallic electron transfer. This book is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and instructors in inorganic and organometallic chemistry. It will also be a useful tutorial for organic chemists who use organometallic reagents for syntheses.
