The Organometallic Chemistry of the Transition Metals: Edition 5

John Wiley & Sons

"One impressive and compressive book. . . . This review would have to be book size to do full justice to all the insights in this volume."
Journal of Metals Online

Fully updated and expanded to reflect recent advances, this Fifth Edition of the classic text provides students and professional chemists with a comprehensive introduction to the principles and general properties of organometallic compounds, as well as including practical information on reaction mechanisms and detailed descriptions of contemporary applications. With increased focus on organic synthesis applications, nanoparticle science, and green chemistry, the Fifth Edition brings this vital resource up to date.

New to the Fifth Edition:

  • Chapters have been updated with relevant examples in the field, modern trends, and new applications; the organic applications chapter has been completely rewritten

  • New end-of-chapter problems, along with their solutions

  • Coverage enhanced with developments in nanoparticle science

  • Increased focus on green chemistry

An unparalleled pedagogic resource as well as a valuable working reference for professional chemists, with comprehensive coverage and up-to-date information, students and researchers in organic and organometallic chemistry will turn to The Organometallic Chemistry of the Transition Metals, Fifth Edition for the critical information they need on organometallic compounds, their preparation, and their use in synthesis.

The shift towards being as environmentally-friendly as possible has resulted in the need for this important volume on heterogeneous catalysis. Edited by the father and pioneer of Green Chemistry, Professor Paul Anastas, and by the renowned chemist, Professor Robert Crabtree, this volume covers many different aspects, from industrial applications to the latest research straight from the laboratory. It explains the fundamentals and makes use of everyday examples to elucidate this vitally important field.

An essential collection for anyone wishing to gain an understanding of the world of green chemistry, as well as for chemists, environmental agencies and chemical engineers.


The Handbook of Green Chemistry comprises of 9 volumes in total, split into 3 subject-specific sets. The three sets are available individually. All 9 volumes are available individually, too.

Set I: Green Catalysis 
  - Volume 1: Homogeneous Catalysis 
  - Volume 2: Heterogeneous Catalysis 
  - Volume 3: Biocatalysis

Set II: Green Solvents
  - Volume 4: Supercritical Solvents
  - Volume 5: Reactions in Water
  - Volume 6: Ionic Liquids

Set III: Green Processes
  - Volume 7: Green Synthesis
  - Volume 8: Green Nanoscience
  - Volume 9: Designing Safer Chemicals

The Handbook of Green Chemistry is also available as Online Edition.

Energy production and storage are central problems for our time. In principle, abundant energy is available from the sun to run the earth in a sustainable way. Solar energy can be directly harnessed by agricultural and photovoltaic means, but the sheer scale of the energy demand poses severe challenges, for example any major competition between biomass production and food production would simply transfer scarcity from energy to food. Indirect use of solar energy in the form of wind looks also promising, especially for those regions not blessed with abundant sunlight. Other modes such as tidal and wave energy may well become important niche players.

Inorganic chemistry plays a decisive role in the development of new energy technologies and   this Volume covers some promising modes of alternative energy production and storage that minimize the atmospheric burden of fossil-derived carbon monoxide. No one production or storage mode is likely to dominate, at least at first, and numerous possibilities need to be explored to compare their technical feasibility and economics. This provides the context for a broad exploration of novel ideas that we are likely to see in future years as the field expands.

This Volume covers a wide range of topics, such as: - Water splitting, only water is a sufficiently cheap and abundant electron source for global exploitation; - Energy conversion by photosynthesis; - Molecular catalysts for water splitting; - Thermochemical water splitting; - Photocatalytic hydrogen production; - Artificial photosynthesis, progress of the Swedish Consortium; - Hydrogen economy; - Reduction of carbon dioxide to useful fuels; - Conversion of methane to methanol; - Dye sensitized solar cells; - Photoinitiated electron transfer in fuel cells; - Proton exchange membranes for fuel cells; - Intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cells; - Direct Ethanol fuel cells; - Molecular catalysis for fuel cells; - Enzymes and microbes in fuel cells; - Li-Ion batteries; - Magic Angle Spinning NMR studies of battery materials; Supercapacitors and electrode materials.

About EIC Books

The Encyclopedia of Inorganic Chemistry (EIC) has proved to be one of the defining standards in inorganic chemistry, and most chemistry libraries around the world have access either to the first or second print edition, or to the online version. Many readers, however, prefer to have more concise thematic volumes, targeted to their specific area of interest. This feedback from EIC readers has encouraged the Editors to plan a series of EIC Books, focusing on topics of current interest. They will appear on a regular basis, and will feature leading scholars in their fields. Like the Encyclopedia, EIC Books aim to provide both the starting research student and the confirmed research worker with a critical distillation of the leading concepts in inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry, and provide a structured entry into the fields covered.

This volume is also available as part of Encyclopedia of Inorganic Chemistry, 5 Volume Set.

This set combines all volumes published as EIC Books from 2007 to 2010, representing areas of key developments in the field of inorganic chemistry published in the Encyclopedia of Inorganic Chemistry. Find out more.
