About this Book

Written by internationally recognised leaders in the field, Metal Amide Chemistry is the authoritative survey of this important class of compounds, the first since Lappert and Power's 1980 book "Metal and Metalloid Amides."

An introduction to the topic is followed by in-depth discussions of the amide compounds of:

  • alkali metals
  • alkaline earth metals
  • zinc, cadmium and mercury
  • the transition metals
  • group 3 and lanthanide metals
  • group 13 metals
  • silicon and the group 14 metals
  • group 15 metals
  • the actinide metals

Accompanied by a substantial bibliography, this is an essential guide for researchers and advanced students in academia and research working in synthetic organometallic, organic and inorganic chemistry, materials chemistry and catalysis.
