Summary and Info
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). It also provides a suitable introduction and overview for chemists who are not working directly in the field.
