Aqueous-Phase Organometallic Catalysis: Concepts and Applications, 2nd, Completely Revised and Enlarged Edition

Aqueous-Phase Organometallic Catalysis: Concepts and Applications, 2nd, Completely Revised and Enlarged Edition

Boy Cornils (Editor), Wolfgang A. Herrmann (Editor)

ISBN: 978-3-527-60248-3 January 2005 780 Pages


Now in its second completely revised and expanded edition. Written by the renowned editors B. Cornils and W. A. Herrmann, this book presents every important aspect of aqueous-phase organometallic catalysis, a method which saves time, waste and money. The large-scale application of this "green" technology in chemical industry clearly underlines its practical use outside of academia.
New chapters (for example "Organic Chemistry in Water"), 20% more content and fully updated contributions from a plethora of international authors make this book a "must-have" for everyone working in this field.

From the reviews of the first edition:

"This overview will be extremely useful for everyone active in this field [...]" Angewandte Chemie

"This book is an essential in any chemical research library and I strongly recommend it to all synthetic research and teaching chemists. [...]" The Alchemist

"The editors are to be congratulated on assembling such a wide range of contributors who have described the industrial as well as the academic aspects of the subject." [...] Journal of Organometallic Chemistry
