While chemists using spectroscopic methods need to learn from the specialists, they do not normally read the spectroscopists′ original papers. This book provides this very information –– summarizing recent advances in the mechanistic understanding of homogeneous catalytic reactions.

Adopting a practice–oriented approach, the authors devote the two parts of the book to the most powerful and complementary spectroscopic techniques – NMR and IR spectroscopy – as well as focussing on important industrial applications with regard to the reaction discussed. The book illustrates how each of these techniques have been used to elucidate mechanisms of important industrial reactions

The result is unique in its scope, allowing chemists from different fields to appreciate how these techniques can be applied to solve their specific catalytic problems.

The prizewinning editor, Professor Brian Heaton, has been a key player in the field for the last twenty years and has brought together a team of authors to cater for specialists and researchers in industry and academia.
