Understanding the mechanisms of the reactions at transition metal sites is a key component in designing synthetic methods, developing industrial homogeneous catalysts, and investigating metalloenzymes. These mechanisms are therefore an essential component of undergraduate courses. The authorhere provides a broad-based and systematic guide through the fundamentals of transition-metal mechanistic chemistry, including substitution, electron transfer, and reaction of ligands.

Editorial Reviews

`It is an excellent, concise, critical and up-to-date account of transition metal reaction mechanisms ... a must for the course lecturer and a useful supplementary book for the motivated student, well worth buying.'P.C.H. Mitchell, Chemistry in Britain, January
