New Paths in the World of Metallacarboranes provides an overview of the recent progress in the field of metallacarborane chemistry while also introducing the reader to four newly synthesized and distinctly unique 12-vertex compounds. The author emphasizes several of the techniques used in this sub-field of inorganic chemistry related to the synthesis, characterization, and analysis of caged metallacarboranes. The characterization data is conveniently recorded in four tables while a series of figures help the reader visualize complicated techniques and elaborate chemical structures. Although cursory in nature, the book provides a solid introduction and background to the field and methods of metallacarborane chemistry while specifically highlighting rhena- and nickelacarboranes. It is a book designed to aid those who are in the process of conducting chemistry research or for people who are just interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the chemistry that is not always taught in a classroom.
