First Edition. xi, [1], errata slip, 310 pp. Original cloth. Very Good. "In 1914 . Sidgwick met Ernest Rutherford and immediately came under his spell. This friendship was of crucial importance, for it inspired Sidgwick to try to explain chemical behavior in terms of atomic structure, as G. N. Lewis and Langmuir were also doing. The first major fruit of this new interest was the publication in 1927 of Electronic Theory of Valency. One of the most novel and important parts of this book was that concerned with the coordination compounds or complexes so extensively studied by A. Werner. Sidgwick showed that, by using the concept of the dative bond., it is possible to rationalize these compounds more successfully than had been done previously. Lewis had already put forward the concept of this bond, but it was Sidgwick's systematic application of the idea that made chemists realize its value and wide importance. Sidgwick also emphasized that both ionic and covalent bonds exist, that generally they are sharply distinguished, and that a given bond might exist in either form, for example, when an acid ionizes. The book presented a brilliant discussion of a wide range of topics on a simple basis, and it had a profound effect" (D. S. B. 12: 419). Buchnummer des Verkäufers 05983
