The reason to propose the concept of this book is that some graduate students could not think their own researches in laboratory with related things learned in undergraduate textbooks. In order to overcome this issue, chapters in this book mention basic things of inorganic chemistry as well as frontier research topics on purpose.
In a conference , for example, we have recently reported the results of Z-scan NLO measurements for the analogous achiral organic ligands and metal complexes shown in Figure 1. As a promising renewable energy, a dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) is developing to improve performance of each materials and systems. From the view point of dye of metal complexes (or extended organic compounds), we have reported chiral Schiff base (salen-type) metal complexes. Induced CD from chiral Schiff base metal complexes containing azo-group has been also investigated for Au or TiO2 nanoparticles using their optical interaction so far.
Probably, the disagreement between researches and textbook may come from deviation (explained in brackets) from typical cases of definition (description) of terms (bold fonts). In this case, related things in basic inorganic chemistry are as follows:
