Book Review

This popular series, designed “to provide all users of inorganic substances with detailed and reliable procedures for the preparation of important and timely compounds”, plays an extremely important role in the burgeoning literature of inorganic chemistry. Because each preparation is experimentally checked independently for reproducibility and yield in a laboratory other than that of the submitters and the sources of reagents are given, Inorganic Syntheses is recognized worldwide as the primary source for the preparation of a multitude of useful inorganic substances. The series is a truly international undertaking; this volume includes 109 submitters and checkers from academic and governmental laboratories in 15 countries. Furthermore, because it includes substances not only traditionally considered inorganic but also those of concern to workers in other fields, it is of interest to the entire scientific community.

This latest volume in the series, which Thomas B. Rauchfuss of the...
