Chalcogen Chemistry: Fundamentals and Applications
Up until a few decades ago, chalcogen chemistry was mainly represented by the chemistry of sulfur-containing compounds. However, with the rise in research around selenium and tellurium compound chemistry, the field has developed significantly as it continues to uncover and understand the peculiarities chalcogens exhibit. Taking an introductory approach, this book is the foundation to the subject that has been long needed.
Covering organic and inorganic synthesis, structural properties, coordination chemistry and computational modelling, all key classes of chalcogen compounds are illustrated. Applications across materials science, biology, pharmaceutical science and environmental topics highlight to readers the impact of chalcogen chemistry in many aspects of research.
Edited by international leaders in the field, Chalcogen Chemistry brings together contributions from acclaimed researchers around the world. This book is ideal for newcomers and established researchers, and provides the first building block to uncovering this fascinating field.
