Summary The Chemistry of the Actinide and Transactinide Elements is the contemporary and definitive exposition of chemical properties of all of the actinide elements, especially of the technologically important elements uranium and plutonium, as well as the transactinide elements. In addition to the comprehensive treatment of the chemical properties of each element, ions and compounds from atomic number 89 (actinium) through 109 (meitnerium), the multi-volume work has specialized and authoritative chapters on electronic theory, optical and laser fluorescence spectroscopy, X-ray absorption spectroscopy, organoactinide chemistry, thermodynamics, magnetic properties, the metals, coordination chemistry, separations, trace analysis, The Editors invited teams of authors, who are active practitioners and recognized experts in their specialty, to write each chapter and have endeavored to provide a balanced and insightful treatment of these fascinating elements at the frontier of the periodic table. Because the field has expanded with new spectroscopic techniques and environmental focus, the work now encompasses six volumes. All chapters represent the current state of research in the chemistry of these elements and related fields
