Ligand Substitution Processes

Written by: Cooper H. Langford and Harry B. Gray

I have no idea how timely this book written in 1966 may be but for anyone interested…from the abstract this text covers, “an approach to classification of ligand substitution reactions that is adapted to what seem to have emerged as the characteristic features of these reactions and is susceptible to operational tests.”

It is included in the CalTech offerings of digitized books and textbooks, so I would hope that it has value to students visiting The Free Textbook List. It was authored by Cooper H. Landford (Amherst College) and Harry B. Gray (Columbia University).
