9780387098470: Landmarks in Organo-Transition Metal Chemistry: A Personal View (Profiles in Inorganic Chemistry)

Since the discovery of ferrocene and the sandwich-type complexes, the development of organometallic chemistry took its course like an avalanche and became one of the scientific success stories of the second half of the twentieth century. Based on this development, the traditional boundaries between inorganic and organic chemistry gradually disappeared and a rebirth of the nowadays highly important field of homogeneous catalysis occurred. It is fair to say that despite the fact that the key discovery, which sparked it all off, was made more than 50 years ago, organometallic chemistry remains a young and lively discipline.

From the Back Cover:

"This book is a little treasure. It will become indispensable reading for those interested in organometallic chemistry and the profound impact that this area of research has had in the chemical sciences and the chemical industry. In an extraordinarily well-documented manner, the book presents the historical development of organometallic chemistry from the early 19th century until the present. It is written in an elegant, readable style and at the same time with great scientific rigor. The historical notes that pervade every chapter are very effective at capturing the attention of the reader and will be especially useful for students, who should be exposed to this side of chemistry. Both researchers and university teachers alike will find Landmarks in Organo-Transition Metal Chemistry: A Personal View a very useful companion."
-Ernesto Carmona, Instituto de Investigaciones Quimicas, University of Seville

"Professor Werner has produced a scholarly volume full of fascinating facts and insights into many of the key developments and episodes in the growth of our knowledge of organometallic chemistry. Stories of the development of experimental and theoretical topics are presented and interwoven with an insight attributable to the extensive personal knowledge and experiences of the author. I recommend this book as a valuable contribution to scholarship and as a jolly good read."
-Malcolm L.H. Green, FRS, Department of Chemistry, Oxford University

About the Author:

As an undergraduate student, Helmut Werner worked for his Diploma Thesis with Franz Hein, one of the giants of coordination chemistry in Germany from 1920 to 1960, and obtained his Ph. D. in the laboratory of Ernst Otto Fischer, one of the great heros of organo-transition metal chemistry in the latter half of the twentieth century. He prepared the first borazine-metal complexes, isolated the chemical Big Mac, promoted the concept of metal basicity, investigated the chemistry of metalla-cumulenes and, most recently, discovered a new bonding mode for tertiary phosphines, arsines and stibines. He held academic positions at the Technical University of Munich, the University of Zürich and the University of Würzburg, and from 1990-2001 was the Chairman of an Interdisciplinary Research Unit in organometallic chemistry.
