Coordination chemistry, as we know it today, has been shaped by
major figures from the past, one of whom was Joseph Chatt.
Beginning with a description of Chatt's career presented by
co-workers, contemporaries and students, this fascinating book then
goes on to show how many of today's leading practitioners in the
field, working in such diverse areas as phosphines, hydrogen
complexes, transition metal complexes and nitrogen fixation, have
been influenced by Chatt. The reader is then brought right
up-to-date with the inclusion of some of the latest research on
these topics, all of which serves to underline Chatt's continuing
legacy. Intended as a permanent record of Chatt's life, work and
influence, this book will be of interest to lecturers, graduate
students, researchers and science historians.
