It had originally been intended to include in this chapter sections on cyanides, isocyanides and diazonium compounds but the idea was abandoned when it was found that there had not been sufficiently important developments in the chemistry of these classes since the appearance of previous volumes in this series (The Chemistry of Diazonium and Diazo Groups, 1978 and Supplement C: The Chemistry of Triple-bonded Functional Groups, 1983).
