There is probably no name more closely linked to metathesis than that of Robert H. Grubbs of the California Institute of Technology. His pioneering work has led to the success of this important and fascinating reaction and in this comprehensive three-volume work he presents all its important aspects.

* The standard work on one of the most fascinating reactions in synthesis
* The team of authors reads like a "Who's who" of metathesis
* Clearly divided into catalyst developments, organic synthesis applications and polymer synthesis
* Presents the commercial applications, too
* More than 40 high-quality contributions
* A must-have for every organic and polymer chemist
