Details: Product Description Designed with the needs of both undergraduate and graduate students in mind, Organometallic Chemistry, Third Edition, covers the fundamentals of organometallic chemistry by presenting seminal experiments, analyzing real data, and offering the most comprehensive problem sets available. The text opens with careful explanations of the structure and bonding of organometallic compounds, providing a uniquely accessible introduction to the subject for undergraduate students. Later chapters build on this foundation with in-depth coverage of more advanced topics such as organometallic reaction mechanisms, catalysis, carbene complexes, metathesis, applications of organometallic chemistry to organic synthesis, and bioorganometallic chemistry. Review " Organometallic Chemistry is a mature, comprehensive textbook. Its writing is clear, authoritative, and student-friendly, and it meets the needs of my classroom better than any of its competitors."--Daniel Rabinovich, University of North Carolina at Charlotte "The new material in the third edition of Organometallic Chemistry is extremely well written and useful. It will give students a thorough understanding of the important areas of modern organometallic chemistry."--James K. Murray, Immaculata University "This book is an excellent, brief overview of the fundamentals of organometallic chemistry. Its strength lies in its organization around bonding, ligand-metal interactions, and mechanism. The third edition of Spessard and Miessler's textbook provides a useful starting point for students seeking to learn the fundamentals of organometallic chemistry."--Jon Parquette, The Ohio State University "The new edition of Organometallic Chemistry is well tailored to a one-semester course for graduate and undergraduate students. Spessard and Miessler's new textbook includes the latest, most relevant material in organometallic chemistry while also preserving the fundamentals."--Ferman Chavez, Oakland University About the Author Gary O.
