About this book

Metallocene is a well known sandwich complex with two cyclopentadienyl ligands such as ferrocene. Recently, such metallocene compounds have been found to be very characteristic and they have become very important, not only in the area of organic synthesis, but also in polymerization in industry. Metal complexes with one cyclopentadienyl ligand have also become popular as half sandwich complexes. The number of researchers in the field of metallocenes has increased rapidly. However, the origin of the characteristic reactivity of metallocenes is not fully understood. In this volume, the chemistry of metal complexes with at least one cyclopentadienyl ligand is comprehensively covered by leading experts. Reactions discussed here are (i) natural product synthesis, (ii) catalytic asymmetric synthesis, (iii) cyclization reactions, (iv)catalytic reactions, (iv) polymerization reactions and (v) carbon-carbon bond cleavage reactions. The reader will have access to useful information about the current state of metallocene chemistry.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is the eighth volume in the series Topics in Organometallic Chemistry, and consists of six chapters written by leading experts in metallocene chemistry. … In summary, this book presents valuable information on recent topics in metallocene chemistry, especially on the stereoselective synthesis of organic compounds. The book is definitely valuable for a quick understanding of this field, and also quite useful to the specialists in this area." (Takahiro Nishimuna, Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Vol. 44 (42), 2005)

"This monograph, whose editor is a well-known international authority, consists of a series of chapters on several very important applications of metallocenes to organic to organic synthesis and the polymerization of alkenes. … is attractive and very well produced, with generally quite well drawn figures, although the subject index is rather brief. The target audience will be organic and organometallic chemists with interests in synthetic applications rather than in applications to homogenous polymerization. All academic research libraries will want a copy … ." (Michael C. Baird, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Vol. 127 (30), 2005)
