  • Focusing on preparation and applications in synthesis and catalysis, this book finally closes a gap in the literature by summarizing this hot topic for the first time.
    As such, it gathers in one volume the key features of metal vinylidene and allenylidene complexes as well as reactive species and covers applications in metathesis, polymerization, molecular materials, carbon rich compounds and fine chemical production. The emphasis here is on the selective transformations of alkynes and enynes plus simple and complex molecules containing a triple C-C bond.
    The result is a must-have ready reference for organic, catalytic, complex, theoretical and polymer chemists, as well as those working with/on organometallics.

  • Water is abundant in nature, non-toxic, non-flammable and renewable and could therefore be safer and economical for the chemical industry
    wherever it is used as a solvent. This book provides a comprehensive overview of developments in the use of water as a solvent for metal
    catalysis, illustrating the enormous potential of water in developing new catalytic transformations for fi ne chemicals and molecular materials
    synthesis. A group of international experts cover the most important metalcatalyzed reactions in water and bring together cutting-edge results
    from recent literature with the first-hand knowledge gained by the chapter authors. This is a must-have book for scientists in academia
    and industry involved in the fi eld of catalysis, greener organic synthetic methods, water soluble ligands and catalyst design, as well as for teachers and students interested in innovative and sustainable chemistry.
