More Organometallic Compounds
The three volume Dictionary of Organometallic Compounds and the first supplementary volume, published by Chapman and Hall, have been reviewed here during the past eighteen months. These have now been followed by the Second Supplement, again edited by Dr. Jane E. Macintyre, running to over 600 pages and priced at £145. A further 315 compounds of the platinum metals are included, all with their molecular formulae, CAS registry number and literature reference. As before, the editor has had the cooperation of a distinguished international advisory board and of a number of specialised editors for individual metals, while sources of further information are given in a substantial list of original publications covering the period up to mid-1985.
