<STRONG>Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry, 3rd Edition (COMC-III)</STRONG>, is aimed at the specialist and non-specialist alike. It covers the major developments in the field in a carefully presented way with extensive cross-references. <STRONG>COMC-III</STRONG> provides a clear and comprehensive overview of developments since 1993 and attempts to predict trends in the field over the next ten years. Applications of organometallic chemistry continue to expand and this has been reflected by the significant increase in the number of volumes devoted to applications in <STRONG>COMC-III.</STRONG> Organic chemists have edited the volumes on organometallic chemistry towards organic synthesis - this is now organized by reaction type so as to be readily accessible to the organic community. Like its predecessors, COMC (1982) and COMC-II (1995), this new work is the essential reference text for any chemist or technologist who needs to use or apply organometallic compounds.<BR/>Also available online via ScienceDirect (2006) – featuring extensive browsing, searching, and internal cross-referencing between articles in the work, plus dynamic linking to journal articles and abstract databases, making navigation flexible and easy.

About the Second Edition:
"I think COMC-II merits a 'rave' review. It is just a superb work in every respect. This new COMCII is an absolute must for all libraries and ever a reasonable purchase for an individual research group of medium size. Any researcher in the field of organometallic chemistry without ready access to it will be seriously handicapped".

Journal of the American Chemical Society, 1996
