Innovation today ...Practice tomorrow. PROGRESS in Inorganic Chemistry Today's cutting-edge chemical experimentation is a foretaste of the technical arsenal of tomorrow's chemist. Progress in Inorganic Chemistry affords instant and convenient access to every area of innovative chemical research and has long served as the professional chemist's index to the newest and influential turns in inorganic chemistry. Featuring the work of internationally renowned chemists, Volume 45 discusses: * Selective Recognition of Organic Molecules by Metallohosts (James W. Canary and Bruce C. Gibb, New York University) * Metallacrowns: A New Class of Molecular Recognition Agents (Vincent L. Pecoraro, Ann J. Stemmler, Brian R. Gibney, Jeffrey J. Bodwin, Hsin Wang, Jeff W. Kampf, and Almut Barwinski, University of Michigan) * The Interpretation of Ligand Field Parameters (Adam J. Bridgeman and Malcolm Gerloch, University Chemical Laboratories) * Chemistry of Transition Metal Cyanide Compounds: Modern Perspectives (Kim R. Dunbar and Robert A.
Heintz, Michigan State University) * Assembling Sugars and Metals: Novel Architectures and Reactivities in Transition Metal Chemistry (Umberto Piarulli and Carlo Floriani, University of Lausanne) * Oxygen Activation Mechanism at the Binuclear Site of Heme-Copper Oxidase Superfamily as Revealed by Time-Resolved Resonance Raman Spectroscopy (Teizo Kitagawa and Takashi Ogura, Institute for Molecular Science) "This series is distinguished not only by its scope and breadth, but also by the depth and quality of the reviews." -Journal of the American Chemical Society "This series is a valuable addition to the library of the practicing research chemist, and is a good starting point for students wishing to understand modern inorganic chemistry." -Canadian Chemical News "[This series] has won a deservedly honored place on the bookshelf of the chemist attempting to keep afloat in the torrent of original papers on inorganic chemistry." -Chemistry in Britain
