ISBN: 978-3-527-60067-0 February 2003 320 Pages


During the last years, the role of titanium and zirconium in organic synthesis has dramatically increased and
nowadays, no synthetic chemist can afford to be without a sound knowledge of this fascinating organometal chemistry.
This unique book, edited by Ilan Marek, thus summarizes the numerous applications and
developments of these two group 4 early transition metal complexes.
A plethora of internationally renowned experts and leading scientists in this field cover all the significant aspects of this increasingly important
part of organic chemistry and bring the reader up to date.
A particularly attractive and useful feature is the inclusion of typical experimental procedures, chosen for broad utility and application.
This comprehensive demonstrates the diversity and the applications of these important compounds and is a must-have for all chemists working in organometallic or synthetic organic chemistry.
