Cluster chemistry is one of the recent, exciting areas ofInorganic Chemistry. The occurence of molecular clusters,like fullerene C60, constitutes a fundamental feature midwaybetween the chemistry of isolated chemical compounds andthat of the elements.Main features of the Cluster Chemistry of both main groupand transition metal elements are treated in this book. Theauthor highlights aspects releated to the synthesis, thestructure, the special bonding and the reactivity of thesespecies. The book is written as a textbook for seniorundergraduate and postgraduate students. References intables andillustrations permit the reader to reach relevantoriginal information.Professor Gonzalez-Moraga fills a demand for a publicationappropriate for dissemination and specially for teachingthis exciting subject.From the Contents: Current Concepts in Modern Chemistry -Transition Metal Cluster Chemistry - Main Group-TransitionMetal Mixed Clusters - Cluster Compounds of the Main GroupElements - Synthetic Analogues of the Active Sites ofIron-Sulfur Proteins.
