Organometallic chemistry explores the chemistry of the often bewildering variety of compounds featuring metal-carbon bonds. A field that has underpinned the development of new synthetic methods and materials, it is also central to our understanding of catalysis. In his text, Manfred Bochmann distils the extensive knowledge of the field into a succinct overview of essential concepts. The book is enriched throughout with examples that demonstrate how our understanding of organometallic chemistry has led to new applications in research and industry - not leastin relation to catalysis - and an extensive reaction schemes and structures give added clarity to the concepts being explained. Striking just the right balance between breadth and depth - and with features throughout to support the learning process - Organometallics and Catalysis is the perfect introduction for undergraduate and graduate students who need a thorough grounding on the subject or are embarking on new researchareas.
