A classic brought up to date with new experiments using the latest methods. Modern spectroscopic techniques and current research topics make this an incomparable resource for undergraduate and graduate students, presenting a fascinating approach to inorganic chemistry by providing experiments that resemble real research. As a result, students learn to think in a research-oriented fashion and to research together in a group. The experiments have been thoroughly tested and safety instructions are included, while hazardous substances are replaced by less harmful ones. This new edition also has a special focus on environmentally friendly experiments.
J. Derek Woollins obtained his PhD from the University of East Anglia (UK) under the supervision of Andrew Thomson and Roger Grinter. He carried out postdoctoral work with Bill Cullen (UBC, Vancouver), Barnett Rosenberg (MSU, Michigan) and Norman Greenwood (Leeds, England) before being appointed as a lecturer at Imperial College London. After 12 years at Imperial College he moved to Loughborough as the Chair in Inorganic Chemistry where he stayed for five years before moving to St. Andrews as the Chair in Synthetic Chemistry in 1999. He is currently Head of the School of Chemistry in St. Andrews. He has played a major part in the development of P-Se heterocyles, synthesising the new reagent [Ph(Se)PSe2P(Se)Ph]. This compound is now commercially available and known as 'Woollins Reagent'. He has published over 440 research papers in main group chemistry and two books.
