Offers an up-to-date account of fundamental and applied research and points to future directions in inorganic fluorine chemistry. Reviews the major advances in fluorine-containing substituent groups. Provides a critical examination of coordination numbers greater than six among fluorides and oxofluorides. Discusses attempts to control chemical reactivity and stability through the use of more nucleophilic sources of fluoride or, conversely, more weakly coordinating anions. Features chapters on new fluorine-containing ligands in organometallic, transition metal, solid state, lanthanide and actinide chemistry.

Editorial Reviews

Proceedings of a symposium held in San Francisco, in April 1992. Papers are divided into three sections: main-group chemistry; organometallic chemistry; and transition metals, lanthanides, and actinides. Topics include photochemical and thermal dissociation synthesis of krypton difluoride, organometallic chemistry of fluorinated isocyanides, reaction of nonmetal fluorides with some platinum metal complexes, and stabilization of unusual cations by very weakly basic fluoro anions.
