about the first edition: `Chemistry of Tin is an excellent resource that should be on the shelves of all university and college libraries... Future editions are almost certain to be produced; I would urge that a good book be made even better by short chapters on these interdisciplinary areas.' New Scientist `This is a broad text bringing much of the chemistry of tin into one volume. It is a multiauthor book, densely packed with information on topics ranging from synthesis to industrial applications. Overall, this is a very well written and useful specialist volume which should find its way into all good libraries. It is an ideal reference book for the personal shelves of those working in the area.' Chemistry in Britain
