A Text-Book of Inorganic Chemistry

Nature volume 140, page 528 (25 September 1937) | Download Citation



THE subject-matter of the present volume is concerned with the aliphatic and aromatic derivatives of selenium and tellurium and the organic compounds of chromium and platinum. It is almost entirely of interest from the point of view of organic chemistry, and it may be suggested that vol. 11, dealing with organo-metallic compounds, four parts of which making up a total of 1,632 pages have already been published, is out of proportion with the rest of the work. In the present volume, very minute details of preparation are given and the text will be of interest mainly to the specialist. The literature appears to have been very well covered and there are good indexes. For those who wish to inform themselves of the subject of which it treats the book will be a very useful guide. The preparations are nearly always given in sufficient detail to make reference to the original publications unnecessary.
