This book serves as a concise guide to essential topics in Transition Metal Organometallic Chemistry for senior undergraduate and graduate students; it blends qualitative theoretical approach with experimental description of the facts. Its content emphasizes on the orbital description of M-L bonds; the electronic structures of the main types of organometallic complexes (ML2 to ML6); main types of organometallic reactions; organometallic compound synthesis, analytical characterization and the reactivity and lastly the applications of transition metals in homogeneous catalysis.
Dr. Francois Mathey received a doctoral degree in chemistry from the University of Paris VI in 1971. He worked for the chemical industry until 1986 and then moved to Ecole Polytechnique. He left Ecole Polytechnique for the University of California Riverside in 2003 and joined NTU in 2008. He has got several awards including the silver ...
