  • Offers innovative approaches for nanostructure design via metathesis chemistry
  • Sets forth novel metathesis catalysts and procedures for efficient synthesis of advanced materials
  • Features contributions from the 2006 NATO-Advanced Study Institute New Frontiers in Metathesis Chemistry
  • Discusses broad applications of metathesis products, including fine chemicals, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, electronics, automotive, security and defense devices

At the 2006 NATO-Advanced Study Institute New Frontiers in Metathesis Chemistry, scientists met for two weeks to debate on the latest trends in olefin metathesis and to forecast future directions of this dynamic field. This volume compiles selected contributions from this meeting by international experts, keeping you current with the latest innovations in the field.

These contributions demonstrate why olefin metathesis has asserted itself within the last decade as a powerful strategy for obtaining fine chemicals, biologically active compounds, architecturally complex assemblies, new materials, and functionalized polymers. You’ll learn about metathesis reactions, such as ring-closing metathesis, enyne metathesis, cross-metathesis, acyclic diene metathesis polymerization, and ring-opening metathesis polymerization.

In particular, you’ll discover how olefin metathesis has gone far beyond twentieth century boundaries. They now offer growing possibilities for sustainable technologies with industrial applications, from the manufacture of smart, nanostructured materials to the synthesis of complex organic compounds, natural products, pharmaceuticals, and s
