Douglas A. Klumpp, PhD, is an Associate Professor at Northern Illinois University in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Following a postdoctoral fellowship in the Olah research group, Professor Klumpp initiated his own research into the chemistry of reactive electrophilic systems; he has applied this chemistry to the development of synthetic methods and the study of reaction mechanisms.
"This book has implications for synthetic and mechanistic organic chemistry, enzyme chemistry and catalysis, and inorganic chemistry too." (Chemistry World, June 2008)
