Edited by

  • Tamejiro Hiyama, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan

Along with volume 10, this volume reviews how transition metal organometallic compounds are used in organic synthesis. Chapters are organised by reaction type to be readily accessible by organic chemists. Classes of reactions reviewed include C-C bond formation, reaction of double bonds, metathesis reactions, carbonylation and polymer synthesis.
