With applications ranging from asymmetric catalysis to magnetic materials, ferrocene is one of the most versatile building blocks in synthesis. This book captures the multidisciplinary nature of ferrocene research, including topics such as ferrocene-containing polymers, ferrocene-containing thermotropic liquid crystals, chiral ferrocene derivatives, and ferrocene-containing charge-transfer materials.

In addition, the reader will find

* valuable information for planning syntheses
* over 70 tables, making relevant data available at a glance * carefully selected references, providing an easy access to the primary literature

Up-to-date, and written by leading international experts in the field, among them R. Deschenaux, C. D. Hall, Y. Butsugan, and R. Herrmann, this book is a welcome source of in-depth information for graduate students and professionals in organic, organometallic, and polymer chemistry, as well as in materials science.
