About this book

Introduction

Homogeneous catalysis is the success story of organometallic chemistry. Reactions with transition metals are now ubiquitous in organic synthesis. Recently, it has been made possible to activate otherwise totally inert, unreactive bonds by the use of transition metals. Until now the topic of activation of inert bonds has been dealt with in the review literature only in terms of stoichiometric reactions, from an inorganic perspective. This volume of Topics in Organometallic Chemistry is a unique source that reviews the state of the art of activation of unreactive bonds both from the inorganic and from the organic synthetic perspectives. It features both stoichiometric and catalytic reactions, covering not only C-H activation, but also that of a wide range of other traditionally inert functionalities including dinitrogen. Leading experts in this field guide the reader through the wealth of new developments in these areas, which are opening up exciting opportunities for academic and industrial chemists alike. Whether you are a graduate student or a researcher in organic, inorganic or organometallic chemistry, in polymer or materials science, or in catalysis research, you will find this book an essential resource and an inspiring source of ideas for your own endeavors.
