Organotransition Metal Chemistry – From Bonding to Catalysis provides a selective, but thorough and authoritative coverage of the fundamentals of organometallic chemistry, the elementary reactions of these complexes, and many catalytic processes occurring through organometallic intermediates. Built upon the foundation established by the classic text by Collman, Hegedus, Norton and Finke, this text consists of new or thoroughly updated and restructured chapters and provides an in-depth view into mechanism, reaction scope, and applications. 

The early chapters describe the principles of bonding and the classes of ligands that characterize organotransition metal chemistry. The remainder of the book focuses on the reactions of organometallic complexes. The second portion of the book describes the classic stoichiometric organometallic reactions, including ligand substitution, oxidative addition, reductive elimination, migratory insertions, eliminations, electrophilic attack on coordinated ligands, nucleophilic attack on coordinated ligands, and chemistry of metal-ligand multiple bonds. The third portion of the text describes the principles of catalysis and the classic catalytic processes of organometallic systems. Written by a teacher and experienced practitioner of the field, the book’s content is simultaneously accessible to students with no background in the subject matter and invaluable to synthetic organic chemists, inorganic chemists, and even experts in the field.
