Transition Metal Organometallics in Organic Synthesis, Volume II covers chapters on the applications of arene and alkyne complexes, as well as cluster compounds, in organic synthesis. The book discusses the potential utility of transition metal-alkyne complexes and derived cluster compounds as reagents in organic synthesis, as well as the complexation reactions of arenes. The text also describes the oxidation, reduction, rearrangement, and other synthetically useful processes. Chemists will find the book invaluable.
