The third edition of Transition Metals in the Synthesis of Complex Organic Molecules is a comprehensive revision and significant expansion of the second edition.
The clear and systematic approach to the formation, manipulation, and reactivity of organometallic complexes has been maintained.
The book is divided into 10 chapters starting with general formalisms, electron counting, and basic principles of organometallic reaction mechanisms.
The organic chemistry of transition metals is then presented by class of metal complex, with many examples of applications in the synthesis of complex natural products and pharmaceuticals.
The book is ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as all practicing synthetic organic chemists.
It is written for organic chemists and offers an easy entry into the field of organotransition metal chemistry without requiring a background in inorganic chemistry.
