Organotransition Metals in Organic Synthesis: Fundamentals and Applications provides a fundamental understanding on how to use transition and main group metals to synthesize simple and complex molecules with a high degree of selectivity. This book details the basic concepts, elementary reactions, and latest developments of organometallic chemistry surrounding the transition metals. Topics covered include electronic configuration and structural, methods for carbon-transition metal bond creation, cleavage of metal-carbon bonds to form new carbon-carbon bonds, chemo-, region-, stereo- and enantio- control, and heterogeneous organometallic reactions.

This book is an ideal resource for researchers and students working with metals in organic synthesis and organometallic chemistry, including those having no prior exposure to organometallic chemistry in synthesis.

Sugata Chatterjee Department of Chemistry, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA. Sugata Chatterjee earned his doctoral thesis (1979 - 1984) under Nobel Laureate (2010) Professor E. Negishi at Purdue University on palladium catalyzed cross coupling (in particular allylation). He was Dr. Negishi's teaching assistant for six semesters in advanced organometallic synthesis and intermediate organic chemistry. During his industrial research career at Hoechst (now Sanofi-Aventis), Merck, Wyeth, Lupin, and Dai-ichi, he has used synthetic organometallic chemistry extensively and with success.
