This is a textbook for a one semester course at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level. Two introductory chapters discuss the collection and analysis of kinetic data. Subsequent chapters cover ligand substitution mechanisms, stereochemical change and fluxional processes, electron transfer reactions, inorganic and organometallic photochemistry, selected bioinorganic systems, and experimental methods. There are sample problems for each chapter and over 900 references to the original more

Review quote

Praise for the previous edition: "This is an invaluable book for advanced inorganic or physical chemistry courses on inorganic mechanisms, and obligatory for any higher education chemistry library. It is also an extremely useful addition to a personal library for researchers who are involved in mechanistic chemistry, whether they class themselves as inorganic or as physical chemists." --Times Higher Education SupplementPraise for the previous edition: "The choice of topics, the balance between organometallic and more classical systems, the thoughtful analysis of current research areas where generalities are difficult to sustain, and the inclusion of relevant data from many different types of experiments are especially noteworthy." --Journal of the American Chemical Societyshow more

Back cover copy

Ideal for one semester courses at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level, the second edition of Reaction Mechanisms of Inorganic and Organometallic Systems helps students develop both an appreciation of and skepticism about mechanistic studies. This new edition simplifies the first two chapters, which concentrate on the real world of collecting and interpreting kinetic data, to make them easily understandable to students with minimal exposure to the basics of more
