Description

Covering the complete breadth of the olefin metathesis reaction.

The second edition of the ultimate reference in this field is completely updated and features more than 80% new content, with the focus on new developments in the field, especially in industrial applications. No other book covers the topic in such a comprehensive manner and in such high quality, and this new edition retains the three-volume format: Catalyst Development, Applications in Organic Synthesis and Polymer Synthesis.
Edited by a Nobel laureate in the field, and with a list of contributors that reads like a "Who's-Who" of metathesis, this is an indispensable one-stop reference for organic, polymer and industrial chemists, as well as chemists working with organometallics.
