Handbook of Metathesis, Volume 2: Applications in Organic Synthesis, 2nd Edition

Robert H. Grubbs (Editor), Daniel J. O'Leary (Editor)

ISBN: 978-3-527-69404-4 March 2015 744 Pages


The second edition of the "go-to" reference in this field is completely updated and features more than 80% new content, with emphasis 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.

Edited by the Nobel laureate R. H. Grubbs and D. J. O´Leary, Volume 2 of the 3-volume work focusses on applications in organic synthesis. With a list of contributors that reads like a "Who's-Who" of metathesis, this is an
indispensable one-stop reference for chemists in academia and industry.
