At long last: The second, completely revised edition of this comprehensive standard reference. Alwyn G. Davies has updated the contents of his book to reflect the current state of research into organotin chemistry. He covers all aspects in detail, such as its synthesis, characterization, structures and applications, while also devoting space to such hot topics as environmental issues. This new edition also includes a CD-ROM with more than 5,000 references, making this database an invaluable tool for everyone working in the field. "The text is well written, extremely accessible and very comprehensive: particularly impressive is the inclusion of up-to-the-minute references in these areas..." - Advanced Materials, 13 (1998) "The standard of production is very good, with well-structured tables and an abundance of clear formula schemas, which enable the reader to quickly grasp the essence of the text." - Angewandte Chemie 16, 1997

About Author

Alwyn Davies did his Ph.D. work in physical organic chemistry at University College London under the supervision of Sir Christopher Ingold, then worked for four years at Battersea Polytechnic in close association with Joseph Kenyon. He then returned to UCL where he has been successively Lecturer, Reader, and Professor. He has held visiting professorships at Indiana, Bordeaux, Freiburg, Deakin, and the Australian National University, and at the National Research Council (Ottawa). His work has covered the interconnecting themes of organic peroxides, organometallic chemistry, free radical chemistry, and the organic and organometallic applications of ESR spectroscopy, and his published work includes a book on Organic Peroxides (1961), and the first edition of Organotin Chemistry (1997).
