Part of the A Macmillan Chemistry Text book series


Here we consider the compounds whose stability is believed to be connected with π bonding. If it is not yet true that they are as the sand that is upon the sea-shore in multitude, there are certainly very many and their influence on the study of inorganic chemistry has been revolutionary.
