The second edition of the "bible" 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 E. Khosravi, this volume focuses on polymer 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.
