This unique book provides comprehensive coverage of monocyclic inorganic ring systems of the p-block elements and the polymers that are derived from them. The book deals firstly with the fundamentals covering the following topics - synthetic methods, characterisation techniques, delocalisation in inorganic rings, paramagnetic inorganic rings, inorganic macrocycles, ligand chemistry and inorganic polymers. The next chapters discuss in detail the chemistry of inorganic homoand heterocycles involving the elements of groups 13-16 (the p-block elements). The book is intended primarily for senior undergraduates and graduate students in inorganic chemistry and research workers, it also provides a suitable introduction and overview for chemists who are not working directly in the field.

"...this book is concise, well written and clearly illustrated.""...coverage makes this book a valuable addition to the personal library of inorganic chemists and those interested in the chemistry of materials. ""...would also be suitable for adoption as a textbook in an upper division or graduate course." * JACS, 2009, 131, 17031 - 17032 *
