Since the discovery of ferrocene and the sandwich-type complexes, the development of organometallic chemistry took its course like an avalanche and became one of the scientific success stories of the second half of the twentieth century. Based on this development, the traditional boundaries between inorganic and organic chemistry gradually disappeared and a rebirth of the nowadays highly important field of homogeneous catalysis occurred. It is fair to say that despite the fact that the key discovery, which sparked it all off, was made more than 50 years ago, organometallic chemistry remains a young and lively discipline.

In 1987 as a young assistant Professor at Harvard University I was assigned to teach Organometallic Chemistry (CHEM 105) to Graduate students and Seniors. Having never taught before I remember reading an article by my PhD supervisor, Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson about his time at Harvard where he discussed a similar problem. “So, gathering what was then the inorganic bible, Sidgwick’s, The Chemical Elements and their Compounds, as well as Pauling’s, Nature of the Chemical Bond, the book I had been brought up on at Imperial College, Emeleus and Anderson’s, Modern Aspects’ of Inorganic Chemistry, and whatever else was available, such as, Yost, Russell and Garner’s books on rare earths and the Groups V and VI elements, I set to work to be at least one lecture ahead of the students.” (G. Wilkinson, The iron sandwich. A recollection of the first four months, J. Organometal. Chem., 1975, 100, 273-278). Taking his lead, I got my copy of the book I had been brought up on at Imperial College, the inorganic bible, Cotton and Wilkinson, Advanced Inorganic Chemistry: A Comprehensive Text, I also attempted to be at least one lecture ahead of the students. Over the next seven years the course evolved with practice. Moving to Rice University in 1995, I taught Transition Metal Chemistry, (CHEM 495) on my own for several years, and that gave me the luxury to develop the topics and methods for teaching the subject. It was decided that Lon Wilson and I would team teach the course. While, Lon spent 6 weeks teaching nothing but porphyrin chemistry (I do not exaggerate), it was up to me in the remaining 6 weeks to teach all of organometallic chemistry. This increased my focus since I realized that it was not necessary to teach everything, if the students could be made to understand the concepts and then apply them. The concept of teaching a pared down course has been developed further in teaching Transition Metal Catalysis as a guest lecturer at Swansea University for my good friend and longtime collaborator Simon Bott, who is at the forefront of the ‘flipped’ method of teaching. Hence the approach taken in this book, not to provide a Comprehensive Text like Cotton and Wilkinson (or as it now is, Cotton, Wilkinson, Murillo and Bochmann) and more of a Hitchhikers Guide to Organometallic Catalysis (apologies to the late Douglas Adams). It is the results of this journey that are covered in the present book.

In this brief, renowned inorganic chemist Jay Labinger tracks the development of his field from a forgotten specialism to the establishment of an independent, intellectually viable discipline. Inorganic chemistry, with a negation in its very name, was long regarded as that which was left behind when organic and physical chemistry emerged as specialist fields in the 19th century. Only by the middle of the 20th century had it begun to gain its current stature of equality to that of the other main branches of chemistry. The author discusses the evidence for this transition, both quantitative and anecdotal and includes consideration of the roles of local and personal factors, with particular focus on Caltech as an illustrative example. This brief is of interest both to historians of science and inorganic chemists who would like to find out how their field began.

As 2019 has been declared the International Year of the Periodic Table, it is appropriate that Structure and Bonding marks this anniversary with two special volumes. In 1869 Dmitri Ivanovitch Mendeleev first proposed his periodic table of the elements. He is given the major credit for proposing the conceptual framework used by chemists to systematically inter-relate the chemical properties of the elements. However, the concept of periodicity evolved in distinct stages and was the culmination of work by other chemists over several decades. For example, Newland’s Law of Octaves marked an important step in the evolution of the periodic system since it represented the first clear statement that the properties of the elements repeated after intervals of 8. Mendeleev’s predictions demonstrated in an impressive manner how the periodic table could be used to predict the occurrence and properties of new elements. Not all of his many predictions proved to be valid, but the discovery of scandium, gallium and germanium represented sufficient vindication of its utility and they cemented its enduring influence. Mendeleev’s periodic table was based on the atomic weights of the elements and it was another 50 years before Moseley established that it was the atomic number of the elements, that was the fundamental parameter and this led to the prediction of further elements. Some have suggested that the periodic table is one of the most fruitful ideas in modern science and that it is comparable to Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection, proposed at approximately the same time. There is no doubt that the periodic table occupies a central position in chemistry. In its modern form it is reproduced in most undergraduate inorganic textbooks and is present in almost every chemistry lecture room and classroom. This first volume provides chemists with an account of the historical development of the Periodic Table and an overview of how the Periodic Table has evolved over the last 150 years. It also illustrates how it has guided the research programmes of some distinguished chemists.

Pink warships that vanish at dusk, urinary maladies of an emperor, and a gold test for cocaine - behold the chemistry of metal ions as never before. In this book you will learn about the sarcophagus molecule, the Chen-Kao test, and how murderers can be caught blue-handed with the wonders of glowing luminol. You will also meet the hidden chemistry of metal ions in everyday life, from the clever modern devices that measure blood-sugar levels, to the leather on your shoes and chewing gum stuck to their soles. Expect to encounter a fair share of heroes and villains, real and fictional, scientist and layperson. Such characters include an ex-MI5 employee running a hospital ward in London amid falling German V1 rockets, a notorious racing cyclist, a proud butler and the lady who first proposed nuclear fission (it's not who you think it is). With engaging, humorous and intelligent prose, the reader will discover the fascinating back-stories of chemical discoveries and inventions where metal ions have played a major role. Featuring a foreword by popular science communicator Dr Raychelle Burks of St. Edward's University, Texas.
