Transition Metals in Organic Synthesis: A Practical Approach

This volume is designed to disseminate practical expertise in this important but practically demanding area of chemistry to undergraduate and postgraduate students in Universities and to researchers working in the chemical industry. The Chapter authors have considerable practical experience in the areas they cover and they are all intimately involved in the teaching of practical chemistry to University students. Topics include transition metal-promoted oxidations, palladium-catalysed carbon-carbon bond formation, ferrocene chemistry, applications of organoiron complexes in organic synthesis, applications of titanocene and zirconocene complexes in organic synthesis and arene chromium tricarbonyl chemistry. A Chapter on Schlenk techniques for handling air-sensitive compounds is also included.
