Handbook of Metathesis, Volume 2 Applications in Organic Synthesis by Robert H. Grubbs

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.

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 A. L. Anet. Following an NSF postdoctoral fellowship with Prof. Yoshito Kishi at Harvard University, he became Assistant Professor at Pomona College, where he is presently the Carnegie Professor of Chemistry.His research interests are in the area of organic synthesis, isotope effects, and nuclear magnetic resonance.

I love the newsletter with reviews of all the new books coming out. Can't wait to open it when it arrives in my inbox.

Rachel Aygin

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.
