A variety of industrial processes rely on organometallic chemistry, and its applications are prominent in natural product synthesis, pharmaceuticals, polymers, and materials science. Fully updated and expanded to reflect recent advances, the Fifth Edition of the classic text provides students and professional chemists with a comprehensive introduction to the principles and general properties of organometallic compounds and includes practical information on reaction mechanisms and contemporary applications. With an increased focus on organic synthesis applications, nanoparticle science, and green chemistry, the new edition brings the entire subject up to date.
