Handbook of Metathesis, 3 Volume Set

Front Cover
Robert H. Grubbs, Anna G. Wenzel, Daniel J. O'Leary, Ezat Khosravi
John Wiley & Sons, May 26, 2015 - Science - 1608 pages

Covering the complete breadth of the olefin metathesis reaction.

The second edition of the ultimate reference in this field is completely updated and features more than 80% new content, with the focus on new developments in the field, especially in industrial applications. No other book covers the topic in such a comprehensive manner and in such high quality, and this new edition retains the three-volume format: Catalyst Development, Applications in Organic Synthesis and Polymer Synthesis.
Edited by a Nobel laureate in the field, and with a list of contributors that reads like a "Who's-Who" of metathesis, this is an indispensable one-stop reference for organic, polymer and industrial chemists, as well as chemists working with organometallics.

About the author (2015)

Robert H. Grubbs received his Ph.D. from Columbia University for work with Ron Breslow. After a postdoctoral year with Jim Collman at Stanford University, he joined the faculty at Michigan State University. In 1978, he moved to the California Institute of Technology, where he is now the Victor and Elizabeth Atkins Professor of Chemistry. Among many other awards he received the Nobel Prize in 2005 for his research on the metathesis reaction. His research interests include polymer chemistry, organometallic catalysis, and development of new synthetic organic methodology.

Anna Wenzel received her PhD at Harvard University under the guidance of Prof. E. N. Jacobsen. From 2003 to 2006 she joined the group of Prof. R. H. Grubbs as NIH Postdoctoral Scholar. In 2006, she joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor at the W. M. Keck Science Department in Claremont, California. In 2012, she was promoted to Associate Professor. Her research topics are asymmetric catalysis, organometallic chemistry, and organic synthesis.

Daniel J. O´Leary received his PhD at UCLA in the group of Prof. Frank A. L. Anet. Following an NSF postdoctoral fellowship with Prof. Yoshito Kishi at Harvard University, he became Assistant Professor at Pomona College, where he is presently the Carnegie Professor of Chemistry.His research interests are in the area of organic synthesis, isotope effects, and nuclear magnetic resonance.

Ezat Khosravi obtained his PhD in Polymer Science from the University of Sussex, UK in 1981. He is presently Reader in Polymer Chemistry at Chemistry Department, Durham University, UK. His research interests range from well-defined polymerization chemistry to novel polymers and biopolymers. He is internationally recognized particularly for his work on Ring Opening Metathesis Polymerization (ROMP) and related chemistry. He is the permanent secretary of the advisory board of the International Symposium on Olefin Metathesis (ISOM).
