Survey of Progress in Chemistry, Volume 1 explores the principles common to all chemistry that undergo major developments and modifications, including high-temperature reactions, chemical valence, metallocenes, and redox reactions. This volume is divided into seven chapters, and begins with the presentation of some analytical methods as research tools in chemistry. The next chapters deal with the thermodynamic generalization of high-temperature reactions; molecular structural studies that are incompatible with the Lewis theory; and the general chemical aspects of metallocenes. These topics are followed by discussions on the significance of oxidation-reaction mechanisms in organic chemistry and some remarkable chemical processes occurring in the living systems. The last chapter describes the structure and reaction mechanisms of Grignard reagent. This book is of value to chemistry teachers and students.
