This 1968 volume contains a number of authoritative accounts in many areas of organic chemistry. Volatile compounds and elements of groups III and IV of the periodic table and fluorine compounds receive particular attention, but aspects of general structural chemistry, organometallic compounds, metal-metal bonding, non-aqueous solutions, coordination compounds and solid state chemistry are also covered by specialists. Each chapter was an important review and a stimulus to workers in its field. The book as a whole is a valuable survey of the scope and methods of inorganic chemistry of this time. The contributors are all former students of Professor Emeléus and this book was devoted to him on the occasion of his 65th birthday. It includes a brief account of his scientific career and achievements by the editors of the volume.
