Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry: New Perspectives (Developments in Inorganic Chemistry) 1st Edition by Ewan J. M. Hamilton eBook PDF
Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry: New Perspectives presents summaries of the work of some of the most creative researchers in the field. The book highlights the most novel approaches and burgeoning applications of synthetic inorganic chemistry in development. Topics include non-precious metals in catalysis, smart inorganic polymers, new inorganic therapeutics, new photocatalysts for hydrogen production, and more. As the first volume in the Developments in Inorganic Chemistry series, this work is a valuable resource for students and researchers working in inorganic chemistry and material science.
- Illustrates the scope and vitality of modern synthetic inorganic chemistry
- Shows the centrality of inorganic chemistry, addressing a variety of global challenges
- Serves to define the current, important and expanding roles of synthetic inorganic chemistry in interdisciplinary areas such as materials science, synthetic organic chemistry, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis
ReviewPresents summaries of the work of some of the most creative researchers in the field of synthetic inorganic chemistry today
About the AuthorEwan J. M. Hamilton is a native of Scotland and earned a B.Sc. in Chemistry at The University of Edinburgh in 1986 before obtaining a Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry in 1990 at the same institution under the supervision of Dr. Alan J. Welch, studying syntheses and structures of carboranes and metallacarboranes. Postdoctoral work with Sheldon G. Shore at The Ohio State University concentrated on new routes to non-oxide ceramic materials (principally BN and AlN) and also expanded his interest in cluster chemistry. Following a brief lectureship at the Ohio State University, Prof. Hamilton joined the faculty at The Ohio State University at Lima, where he teaches today. His interests remain in the general area of synthetic inorganic chemistry, and he continues to seek new applications and horizons for the chemistry of boron
