The main theme of this title is that of the mechanisms by which substitution, electron transfer, and other sundry reactions of inorganic species take place.*Full and balanced coverage of substitution and electron transfer.*Numerous examples of the role of inorganic mechanisms in applications - bioinorganic, organometallic, catalysis, geochemistry, and inorganic pharmocology.*Considers the medium effect - i.e. the solvent as well as the reaction.
