The central role of the d-block metals in the periodic table

As part of the celebrations for the International Year of the Periodic Table , Dalton Tansactions reccently published a themed issue looking at the central role of the d-block materials.

Guest Edited by Catherine E. Housecroft, Christine M. Thomas and Mi Hee Lim, this collection of reports and perspectives highlights the important role that d-block metals play in sustainable energy, catalysis, diagnostics and medicine, and chemical education.
