Abstract

Widespread interest in mechanistic work among Inorg. chemists did not really appear until the 1950s, considerably later than for their org. colleagues. Ronald Nyholm and others have identified a mid-century "renaissance" of inorg. chem., and the turn towards mechanism played a major part in that development. I will discuss the central role of Fred Basolo and Ralph Pearson's 1958 monograph "Mechanisms of Inorg. Reactions" in influencing that turn, based upon a combined horizontal and vertical sampling of inorg. textbooks around that period.
