From the Back Cover:

This volume of the Handbook on the Physics and Chemistry of Rare Earth adds four chapters to the series which focus on stunning compounds and unusual spectroscopic methods, describing a mix of experimental and theoretical data. It opens with a review (Chapter 244) on magnetic circular dichroism (MCD), a very informative spectroscopy, although not yet widespread. The following chapters illustrate the state of the art in subjects as varied as molecular lanthanide clusters, the synthesis of which still relies on random self-organization (Chapter 245), low-valence organometallic compounds which were long thought to be too unstable to be isolated (Chapter 246), and lanthanide and actinide polynuclear helicates in which organic ligand strands wrap helically by self-assembly around metal centers (Chapter 247). Each chapter also discusses present and potential applications of the technique or compounds reviewed.
