Handbook of Metathesis, Volume 2 Applications in Organic Synthesis Synopsis

The second edition of the go-to reference in this field is completely updated and features more than 80% new content, with emphasis on new developments in the field, especially in industrial applications. No other book covers the topic in such a comprehensive manner and in such high quality. Edited by the Nobel laureate R. H. Grubbs and D. J. O'Leary, Volume 2 of the 3-volume work focusses on applications in organic synthesis. With a list of contributors that reads like a Who's-Who of metathesis, this is an indispensable one-stop reference for chemists in academia and industry.

About Robert H. Grubbs

Robert H. Grubbs received his Ph.D. from Columbia University for work with Ron Breslow. After a postdoctoral year with Jim Collman at Stanford University, he joined the faculty at Michigan State University. In 1978, he moved to the California Institute of Technology, where he is now the Victor and Elizabeth Atkins Professor of Chemistry. Among many other awards he received the Nobel Prize in 2005 for his research on the metathesis reaction. His research interests include polymer chemistry, organometallic catalysis, and development of new synthetic organic methodology. Daniel J. O'Leary received his PhD at UCLA in the group of Prof. Frank ...
