The young year-old British assistant professor found it difficult, if not impossible, to find a satisfactory textbook for his course. Among recently published books Nevil Vincent Sidgwick's massive, two-volume The Chemical Elements and Their Compounds Oxford University Press: Oxford, ; pp , although a gold mine of information, was hardly appealing as a text.
Anderson's Modern Aspects of Inorganic Chemistry Van Nostrand: Princeton, NJ, and , which was not really a text but rather a collection of reviews of interesting new areas. Therefore the professor and the student, who had already chosen him as his Ph. The professor's name? The student's name? Al Cotton, later W. And the rest, as they say, is history.
The book was written, as were all later editions, with the authors an ocean apart. Yet, although each possessed different approaches to his own research, the two authors had a spontaneous harmony in their writing. Also, because each edited what the other had written, there was little, if any, variation in style from one chapter to another.
The book was the first inorganic text, at any level, to present an introduction to ligand field theory LFT , which by that time had become very prominent in the research literature and hence should have been discussed in inorganic chemistry courses. It was a systematically organized work dealing with all the elements from hydrogen to the actinides, with a reasonable allotment of space to each. The concepts of LFT were not only expounded but also brought to bear on the magnetic and spectroscopic properties of each of the transition elements as its chemistry was discussed.
Other innovations included tables of oxidation states and stereochemistries of each metallic element, with examples of each and with a strong emphasis on structural chemistry in general. These, and other methods of treating the subject that were new at the time, have continued to shape the coverage in all subsequent editions. Cotton and G. Wilkinson at a meeting in Ettal, Germany in Cotton and Wilkinson's text has evolved during the more than three and a half decades since its inception, while the authors learned more about the field as it underwent a veritable renaissance.
The first edition contained a good deal of bonding theory, notably LFT, that has since been deleted because it is now discussed in lower level courses. It gave only a few references to the secondary literature such as reviews and monographs.
Because of the rapid growth of the subject, references to the primary literature were first introduced in the second edition , and this practice has continued to the present. The second through sixth editions contain a total of about 13, references, including about in the sixth. With the third edition the authors adopted a policy of presenting new references only for new material, a policy that they have continued.
With the exception of three earlier references in tables or figures, the references in the sixth edition range from to Thus, through the years, the various editions of this phenomenally successful and popular text present an extensive historical record of when and where new facts and new ideas were first reported. After the appearance of the second edition, the book firmly established itself as the standard text for advanced inorganic courses.
Although the second, third, and fourth editions were translated into seven, four, and four foreign languages, respectively, the first and fifth editions were never translated, probably because of the emerging dominance of English as the lingua franca of science beginning in the s.
