Reviews


?This book on chirality in transition metal chemistry is the first to give specialized treatment on the subject since Alex von Zelewsky's 1996 work, Stereochemistry of Coordinatino Compounds.? ( Book News, September 2009)

?Overall this book will be useful to students taking an advanced undergraduate course and particularly to postgraduates and academics undertaking research in the areas of chiral inorganic supramolecular complexes and materials.? (Chemistry World, August 2009)

"The book offers an extremely exciting new addition to the study of inorganic chemistry, and should be compulsory reading for students entering their final year of undergraduate studies or starting a Ph.D. in structural inorganic chemistry.? (Applied Organometallic Chemistry, May 2009)

"This book can be considered as a textbook that is also of interest as a reference book for specific problems. The balancing act between basic knowledge and timely research is well performed by the authors.... I can recommend the book by Amouri and Gruselle to everybody who is interested in the chemistry of chiral coordination compounds." (Angewandte Chemie International Edition, April 2009)

"A comprehensive inorganic textbook that explains the fundamentals of chirality and then approaches the specifics of the structure and properties of chiral transition metal compounds.... The authors do not apply any specific focus; rather, they use good examples to open up a multitude of fascinating areas of application." (Organic Chemistry, February 2008)
