Transition Metals for Organic Synthesis
The definitive standard reference on the topic - now in its second, expanded edition with 20% more content and new chapters about ionic liquids, high pressure chemistry, the use of microwave technology and many more.
The two-volume "Beller/Bolm" presents the numerous applications in both academic and industrial research in a clearly structured manner. The fundamentals, catalytic and stoichiometric reactions with transition metals such as hydroformylation, amidocarbonylation and the Pauson-Khand reaction are treated in the first volume. The second volume focuses on hydrogenations and oxidations, as well as more modern methods, including the use of microwaves or ionic liquids.
The top editors, Matthias Beller and Carsten Bolm, have put together an international team of over 70 renowned authors, including two Nobel laureates, to guarantee first-class contributions. Readers in academia or industry will find here rapid access to this thorough and indispensable compendium.
