About Book

Gold is a soft metal occurring naturally as particles in quartz or as nuggets. Gold was initially used extensively in coinage and jewellery and has recently found applications in biochemistry, medicine and material science. Gold readily forms organometallic compounds (R-Au-L with L = sulphide, phosphine and isocyanide),oxides and halides. Silver is a ductile metal which was used in coin age and for mirrors. It is now used for jewellery, electrical conductors, dental and surgical components. Silver forms stable silver halides for use in Photography and spectroscopy as a support material. Other silver compounds are also used in catalysis. The 100th volume in this highly successful and renowned Patai and Rappoport series ‘The Chemistry of Functional Groups’ is fittingly devoted to the precious metals, gold and silver.
