The synergistic extraction of trivalent actinoids and lanthanoids is of great interest because of the high extraction efficiency of these metal ions in the presence of a chelating agent and a neutral donor [1-7].
Changes in this edition include updates to the chapters on organometallic catalysis in synthesis and production, bioorganometallic chemistry, and new developments in the field; there is also a new chapter on organometallic chemistry of the lanthanoids and actinoids. The book was originally published in German and is in its fifth edition in that language.
The next pair of presentations looked at some of the relationships other than groups and periods, such as the diagonal relationship, the (n) and (n+ 10) relationship, the Knight's move relationship, isoelectronic patterns, relationships among the lanthanoids and actinoids, and the concepts of "combo" and pseudo elements.
