Handbook of Boron Science bring together an array of internationally renowned scientists to discuss the very latest developments in the application of boron in a broad range of disciplines. This multi-reference work describes the topic by appointing leading researchers to write on current developments in boron science, showcasing its importance to the four separate areas described in each volume: Organometallic Chemistry, Catalysis, Materials Chemistry and Medicine.

Written to cover the full range of applications and innovations in boron science, this all-encompassing work offers us a one-stop reference compiled by world-leading researchers and practitioners of the subject, making it perfect for undergraduate and graduate students of chemistry, and researchers and practitioners interested in their professional development.
