Inorganic Fluorine Chemistry: Toward the 21st Century (ACS Symposium #555) (Hardcover)
Offers an up-to-date account of fundamental and applied research and points to future directions in inorganic fluorine chemistry. Reviews the major advances in fluorine-containing substituent groups. Provides a critical examination of coordination numbers greater than six among fluorides and
oxofluorides. Discusses attempts to control chemical reactivity and stability through the use of more nucleophilic sources of fluoride or, conversely, more weakly coordinating anions. Features chapters on new fluorine-containing ligands in organometallic, transition metal, solid state, lanthanide
and actinide chemistry.
