Understanding the mechanisms of the reactions at transition metal sites is a key component in designing synthetic methods, developing industrial homogeneous catalysts, and investigating metalloenzymes. These mechanisms are therefore an essential part of undergraduate chemistry courses. This primer provides a broad-based, systematic guide to the fundamentals of transition-metal mechanistic chemistry, including substitution, electron transfer, and reactions of ligands. It serves as an ideal text for undergraduate students with a foundation in basic inorganic chemistry but who are new to inorganic reaction mechanisms.

Richard A. Henderson is at University of Sussex.Review:
'Richard Henderson writes with the authority of a specialist and in a very approachable style. He covers the most important reaction classes from which one can build up more complex reaction sequences.'
Flash Science, March 1994
'The aim is to present to undergraduate students the essential features of the mechanisms of transition metal chemistry. It is meant to stimulate further reading rather than attempt to be comprehensive and is in the best tradition of Oxford Science Publications.'
Aslib Book Guide, vol. 59, No. 5, May 1994
`...I found this book to be an excellent and well-targeted review of most of the important areas covered by the title including substitution reactions at four- and six-coordinate sites, catalysed substitution reactions and electron transfer reactions with some nice examples from bioinorganic
D.A. Brown, University College Dublin, Journal of Organometallic Chemistry, No. 494, 1995
`The book should, however, be in every student library, and many teachers of inorganic chemistry will find it useful to have a personal copy in which to find recent examples and clear diagrams of complicated structures.'
Paul D. Lickiss, Imperial College of Science and Technology, London, Journal of Organometallic Chemistry, No. 494, 1995
`It is an excellent, concise, critical and up-to-date account of transition metal reaction mechanisms ... a must for the course lecturer and a useful supplementary book for the motivated student, well worth buying.'
P.C.H. Mitchell, Chemistry in Britain, January
