Chirality in Transition Metal Chemistry: Molecules, Supramolecular Assemblies and Materials (0470060530) cover image
Chirality in Transition Metal Chemistry is an essential introduction to this increasingly important field for students and researchers in inorganic chemistry. Emphasising applications and real-world examples, the book begins with an overview of chirality, with a discussion of absolute configurations and system descriptors, physical properties of enantiomers, and principles of resolution and preparation of enantiomers. The subsequent chapters deal with the the specifics of chirality as it applies to transition metals.

Some reviews of Chirality in Transition Metal Chemistry

"...useful to students taking an advanced undergraduate course and particularly to postgraduates and academics undertaking research in the areas of chiral inorganic supramolecular complexes and materials." Chemistry World, August 2009

 “…the book offers an extremely exciting new addition to the study of inorganic chemistry, and should be compulsory reading for students entering their final year of undergraduate studies or starting a Ph.D. in structural inorganic chemistry.”
Applied Organometallic Chemistry Volume 23, Issue 5, May 2009

“…In conclusion the book gives a wonderful overview of the topic. It is helpful for anyone entering the field through systematic and detailed introduction of basic information. It was time to publish a new and topical text book covering the important aspect of coordination chemistry. It builds bridges between Inorganic, organic and supramolecular chemistry. I can recommend the book to everybody who is interested in the chemistry of chiral coordination compounds .”
Angew. chem. Volume 48, Issue 18, April 2009

About the Series

Chirality in Transition Metal Chemistry is the latest addition to the Wiley Inorganic Chemistry Advanced Textbook series. This series reflects the pivotal role of modern inorganic and physical chemistry in a whole range of emerging areas such as materials chemistry, green chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry, as well as providing a solid grounding in established areas such as solid state chemistry, coordination chemistry, main group chemistry and physical inorganic chemistry.

This book on chirality in transition metal chemistry is the first to give specialized treatment on the subject since Alex von Zelewsky's 1996 work, Stereochemistry of Coordinatino Compounds. ( Book News, September 2009)

Overall this book will be useful to students taking an advanced undergraduate course and particularly to postgraduates and academics undertaking research in the areas of chiral inorganic supramolecular complexes and materials. (Chemistry World, August 2009)

"The book offers an extremely exciting new addition to the study of inorganic chemistry, and should be compulsory reading for students entering their final year of undergraduate studies or starting a Ph.D. in structural inorganic chemistry. (Applied Organometallic Chemistry, May 2009)

"This book can be considered as a textbook that is also of interest as a reference book for specific problems. The balancing act between basic knowledge and timely research is well performed by the authors.... I can recommend the book by Amouri and Gruselle to everybody who is interested in the chemistry of chiral coordination compounds." (Angewandte Chemie International Edition, April 2009)

"A comprehensive inorganic textbook that explains the fundamentals of chirality and then approaches the specifics of the structure and properties of chiral transition metal compounds.... The authors do not apply any specific focus; rather, they use good examples to open up a multitude of fascinating areas of application." (Organic Chemistry, February 2008)
