This handbook and ready reference highlights the latest insights and developments in the studies of important organometallic, homogeneous, and heterogeneous reaction mechanisms. It adopts a unique approach, exemplifying how to use experiments, spectroscopic investigations, and computational methods to reveal reaction pathways and molecular structures of catalysts, rather than concentrating solely on one discipline. The result is a deeper understanding of the underlying reaction mechanisms and correlation between molecular structure and reactivity. The contributions represent a wealth of first-hand information from renowned experts working in all major disciplines, covering such topics as activation of small molecules, palladium catalysis, cross-coupling reactions, and nanoparticle synthesis. With the knowledge gained, the reader will be able to improve existing reaction protocols and rationally design more efficient catalysts or selective reactions.
An indispensable source of information for synthetic, analytical, and theoretical chemists in academia and industry alike.
