NMR in Organometallic Chemistry

Paul S. Pregosin

ISBN: 978-3-527-68031-3 July 2013 406 Pages


The first and ultimate guide for anyone working in transition organometallic chemistry and related fields, providing the background and
practical guidance on how to efficiently work with routine research problems in NMR.
The book adopts a problem-solving approach with many examples taken from recent literature to show readers how to interpret the data.
Perfect for PhD students, postdocs and other newcomers in organometallic and inorganic chemistry, as well as for organic chemists
involved in transition metal catalysis.
