Designed with the needs of both undergraduate and graduate students in mind, Organometallic Chemistry, Third Edition, covers the fundamentals of organometallic chemistry by presenting seminal experiments, analyzing real data, and offering the most comprehensive problem sets available.The text opens with careful explanations of the structure and bonding of organometallic compounds, providing a uniquely accessible introduction to the subject for undergraduate students. Later chapters build on this foundation with in-depth coverage of more advanced topics such as organometallicreaction mechanisms, catalysis, carbene complexes, metathesis, applications of organometallic chemistry to organic synthesis, and bioorganometallic chemistry.
