Organonickel chemistry plays an increasingly important role in organic chemistry, and interest in this topic is now just as keen as in organopalladium chemistry. While there are numerous, very successful books on the latter, a book specializing in organonickel chemistry is long overdue.
Edited by one of the leading experts in the field, this volume covers the many discoveries made over the past 30 years, and previously scattered throughout the literature. Active researchers working at the forefront of organonickel chemistry provide a comprehensive review of the topic, including cross-coupling reactions, asymmetric synthesis and heterogeneous catalysis reaction types.
A must-have for both organometallic chemists and synthetic organic chemists.

"This book provides knowledge and information on high quality, both in the chapter introductions and in the descriptions of recent developments in organonickel chemistry. The arrangement of the chapter topics is good, and there are no overlaps. ... The book can be recommended for organic chemists, both in universities and in industrial research and development. ...students in advanced courses will benefit from studying the metal-catalyzed reactions that are discussed in Modern Organonickel Chemistry, and the book will certainly give them a good introduction to the world of metalcatalyzed organic synthetic chemistry."
