In common with the editor of the first edition, my own personal involvement with tin chemistry began when I had the privilege of studying for a PhD degree under the supervision of Professor Alwyn G. Davies FRS at University College London (UCL) almost exactly 30 years ago. Then, following 21 years' service with the International Tin Research Institute, it was a great pleasure for me when the wheel turned full circle and, in 1994, Alwyn - now an Emeritus Professor - asked me to return to UCL as an Honorary Research Fellow in the Chemistry Department. One of my first tasks was when I received an invitation from Blackie A&P to edit the second edition of the Chemistry of Tin, which I was delighted to accept, since it enabled me to continued my life-long interest in tin chemistry and to maintain contact with my former friends and colleagues, many of whom have contributed to this book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
about the first edition:
`Chemistry of Tin is an excellent resource that should be on the shelves of all university and college libraries... Future editions are almost certain to be produced; I would urge that a good book be made even better by short chapters on these interdisciplinary areas.'
New Scientist
`This is a broad text bringing much of the chemistry of tin into one volume. It is a multiauthor book, densely packed with information on topics ranging from synthesis to industrial applications. Overall, this is a very well written and useful specialist volume which should find its way into all good libraries. It is an ideal reference book for the personal shelves of those working in the area.'
