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 E. Khosravi, Volume 3 of the 3-volume work focusses on polymer 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.
