Organometallics in Synthesis: A Manual, 2nd Edition

Organometallics in Synthesis: A Manual, 2nd Edition

Manfred Schlosser (Editor)

ISBN: 978-1-118-75042-1 June 2013 1256 Pages


This volume is not just another new edition, the text has increased by more than 50 percent, incorporating many new applications and protocols. All chapters on organo-alkali, -alkali earth, -titanium, -copper, -palladium, -boron, -aluminium and -tin chemistry have been completely revised and updated.

All contributions are written with practical laboratory work in mind, be it for undergraduate and graduate students learning the trade, or for the experienced industrial synthetic chemist expanding his/her repertoire with additional versatile reagents and catalysts.

This Second Edition presents:

  • A unique collection of the best and most versatile organometallics for synthesis
  • A judicially edited introduction to an important synthetic field written by world experts
  • A day-to-day reference for synthetic chemists
  • Theory and hands-on protocols for use in today's synthetic laboratories
