Efficient Methods for Preparing Silicon Compounds is a unique and valuable handbook for chemists and students involved in advanced studies of preparative chemistry in academia and industry. Organized by the various coordination numbers (from two to six) of the central silicon atom of the reported compounds, this book provides researchers with a handy and immediate reference for any compound or properties needed in the area.
Edited by a renowned expert in the field, each chapter explores a different type of compound, thoroughly illustrated with useful schemes and supplemented by additional references. Knowledgeable contributors report on a broad range of compounds on which they have published and which are already used on a broad scale or have the potential to be used in the very near future to develop a new field of research or application in silicon chemistry.
- Includes contributions and edits from leading experts in the field
- Includes detailed chemical schemes and useful references for each preparative method
- Organized by the coordination numbers of the central silicon atom for each compound for easy navigation
- Serves as a go-to primer for researchers in novel compositions of silicon matter
