Breaking bonds over many timescales: in celebration of Robin Perutz’s 70th birthday

Breaking bonds over many timescales: in celebration of Robin Perutz's 70th birthday

Guest-edited by Simon B. Duckett, M. Carmen Nicasio and Michael K. Whittlesey, we reccently published a special collection of Dalton Transactions to mark the 70th birthday of mentor, friend and colleague, Professor Robin Perutz FRS. The collection features areas of organometallic and coordination chemistry where Robin has contributed over the last 40+ years. Themed around the breaking of bonds, it includes both thermal and photochemical bond breakage and activation in stoichiometric and catalytic reactions. Spectroscopic characterisation of reaction intermediates features alongside experimental and computational studies of reactivity.
