The Colour of Metal Compounds is devoted to the qualitative and quantitative treatment of colour in inorganic and coordination compounds. In order to understand the use of colour as a source of structural and analytical information, the book explains in depth the interrelation between colour and structural properties of compounds. Trichromatic colorimetry is introduced as a method for the quantitative evaluation of colour. Further chapters cover chromaticity and spectroscopy, lanthanides, colour centres, colour in mineralogy, pigments, coloured glass, and the colour use in teaching. Fully revised from the original Polish edition, this book is recommended as a supplementary text for undergraduate and graduate level courses on transition metal chemistry, coordination chemistry, spectroscopy and colour chemistry. It will also be of interest to researchers in chemistry, physics, mineralogy and the pigment and glass industry.
