Although research is becoming increasingly specialized these days, which also holds for Inorganic Chemistry, "Inorganic Chemistry Highlights" intend to give an overview on new developments in selected areas of this discipline. Scientists from all over the world present current and widely interesting contributions highlighting their research in - molecular chemistry - main group chemistry - solid state chemistry - coordination chemistry - materials science - bioinorganic chemistry - related topics The book is addressed to everyone looking out for an insight in the inorganic world beyond the own special research area.
