  • First book for students
  • Includes exercises and summaries after each chapter
  • Organometallic chemistry is covered in the broadest possible way

This is the first book on the subject specifically for students.

It covers the basic and advanced aspects of organometallic chemistry of all metals and related catalysis topics.

In order to present a comprehensive view of the subject, it examines the historical background, as well as concepts (including structures of mono- and polymetallic complexes), molecular orbitals, reactivity, implications in biology and applications to organic synthesis and catalysis.

The catalysis section includes the challenging activation and functionalization of the main classes of hydrocarbons and the industrially crucial heterogeneous catalysis.

Chapter-end summaries and exercises support self- and group study, with solutions included at the end of the book.

Hundreds of selected references complement the text for further reading. Readers will find a chapter-length treatment of green chemistry, as well as many recent international research results, that round off this highly accessible textbook.
