Handbook of Functionalized Organometallics: Applications in Synthesis, 2 Volume Set (3527311319) cover image


Edited by one of the leading experts in the field, this handbook is the first to cover the field in its entirety, not merely focusing on one single metal but on the whole range of different compounds.
Paul Knochel provides everything there is to know about this hot topic. By imparting his knowledge, he shows readers how to significantly improve their synthetic strategies.
A must for chemists working with and on organometallics, organic chemists, catalytic chemists, and those in industry.

Author Information

Born in Strasbourg, France in 1955, Paul Knochel studied at the University of Strasbourg and gained his PhD at the ETH-Zurich under Prof. D. Seebach. He spent 4 years at the CNRS of the University Pierre and Marie Curie at Paris under Professor J.-F. Normant and a one-year post-doc at Princeton University, under Professor M. F. Semmelhack. In 1987 he accepted an assistant professorship at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, Michigan, becoming a full professor there in 1991. One year later he moved to Philipps-University at Marburg, Germany as Professor in Organic Chemistry. In 1999, he transferred to the Chemistry Department at Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, Germany, where he remains today. Professor Knochel's research interests include the development of novel organometallic reagents and methods for use in organic synthesis, asymmetric catalysis and natural product synthesis.

"The book is well-structured, and the individual chapters have been written by leading chemists in each area. The editor has coordinated the large amount of information effectively. All the chapters deal with up-to-date topics and are of high quality...This useful book should be bought by graduate students as well as industrial and academic researchers interested in organic synthesis. It will also provide stimulating ideas for open-minded organometallic chemists who seek new organometallic reagents for novel and useful transformations."
Angewandte Chemie International Edition

"...this pair of volumes should be in every medicinal and process chemist's library. The main problem will be - will it still be on the library shelf since it is likely to be so heavily used. Best to buy your own copy! Wiley-VCH now have an excellent series of books on organometallic chemistry with recent titles on "Modern Organonickel Chemistry", "Ruthenium in Organic Synthesis", "Metal Catalysed Cross Coupling Reactions", "Titanium and Zirconium in Organic Synthesis" and "Transition Metals for Organic Synthesis". Knochel's book on Functionalised Organmetallics maintains the very high standard of this series."
