Clearly, oxidation states two and three are the most common. Differences in the definition of what amounts to a common oxidation state leads to some variation, but the general trends remain constant. What is immediately apparent from Figure 1. Still, you are hardly spoilt for choice as a coordination chemist! The standard reduction potential E0 provides a measure of the stability of a metal in a particular oxidation state. The E0 value is the voltage generated in a half-cell coupled with the standard hydrogen electrode SHE , which itself has a defined half-cell potential of 0. Put simply, the more positive is E0 the more difficult is it for metal oxidation to a hydrated metal ion to occur. Alternatively, we could express it by saying that the less positive is E0 , the more stable is the metal in the higher oxidation state of its couple Metals in Molecules 9 and consequently the less easily is it reduced to the lower oxidation state. Metal activity can be related to reactivity with a protic solvent like water or hydrogen ions, and correlates with electronegativity. Electronegative metals have positive cation reduction potentials; these include most of the second and third rows of the d block. Reactivities in redox processes differ for these different classes; electronegative metals are not corroded by oxygen, for example, unlike electropositive metals. Yet another way of defining commonality with metal ions relates to how many ligand donor groups may be attached to the central metal. Cobalt III was shown decades ago to have what was then thought to be invariably six donor groups or atoms bound to the central metal ion, or a coordination number of six. While this is still the overwhelmingly common coordination number for cobalt in this oxidation state, there are now stable examples for Co III of coordination numbers of five and even four.

Cotton, G. Wilkinson, C.

Murillo, and M. Bochmann Wiley-Interscience: New York, ISBN Some 15 years later, here I am, browsing in awe and reviewing the new edition of what is arguably the most popular inorganic chemistry textbook ever published. Now with two additional coauthors, Carlos A.

Murillo and Manfred Bochmann, the sixth edition follows previous ones in organization and style but its content has been thoroughly revised.

To keep the book at a reasonable length not to mention weight!

Since several excellent monographs on bioinorganic chemistry have appeared in the last decade, the entire corresponding chapter 42 pages in the fifth edition has been reduced to about a page in the sixth. Nevertheless, key biological aspects of vanadium, iron, nickel, copper, zinc, and other essential elements have been incorporated as separate sections with each one of them. In the same vein, chapters dedicated to metal carbonyls, intermetallic multiple bonds, metal hydrides and dihydrogen complexes, and other aspects of descriptive organometallic chemistry now appear distributed appropriately among the most pertinent transition metals.

The book is split into four majors parts and a total of 22 chapters. The new text takes the original three chapters and separates the subsections into independent chapters.

Each of the independent chapters has been updated with current examples from the literature and expanded data tables and figures.

A completely new chapter Chapter 8 has been added www. Other new features include a list of objectives and learning goals for students at the beginning of each chapter.

These lists make the text more studentfriendly by providing an outline of the topics to be covered and by focusing attention on the important concepts in each chapter. In addition, a limited number of questions with answers has been added to the end of each chapter.

The majority of the questions are very well-constructed and should help advanced students check their understanding of the material in the chapter. The bibliography is loaded with additional reading selections, with a good mix of current literature and classic references.

The only omissions from the original text are a few specific chemical reactions detailing the production of various lanthanide halides and an interesting outline for the production of uranium metal from the ore concentrates. On a negative note, the first few chapters have several typos, ranging from incorrect chemical symbols and equations to data in the text not matching data in tables. While I found the typos only annoying, students will find them confusing.

Overall, the manuscript reads more like a reference book than a textbook for students.
