Reaction Mechanisms of Inorganic and Organometallic Systems

This is a textbook for a one semester course at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level. Two introductory chapters discuss the collection and analysis of kinetic data. Subsequent chapters cover ligand substitution mechanisms, stereochemical change and fluxional processes, electron transfer reactions, inorganic and organometallic photochemistry, selected bioinorganic systems, and experimental methods. There are sample problems for each chapter and over 900 references to the original literature.
