Finally as softcover:
Homogeneous catalysis is the success story of organometallic chemistry. Since the discovery of hydroformylation by O. Roelen in 1938, catalytic applications have paved the way of organometallic compounds in industry. Bulk and fine chemicals, and even natural products are being produced via homogeneous organometallic catalysis. The enormous breadth of this topic in view of both basic research and industrial application is met congenially in this handbook edited jointly by W. A. Herrmann (Technical University Munich) and B. Cornils (Hoechst AG, Frankfurt). The list of over 90 contributors reads like a who-is-who in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. In this handbook, experts will find the current state-of-the-art in their field and advanced students will benefit from the concise treatment of important catalytic reactions and processes. With its balanced presentation of the truly interdisciplinary topic and its outstanding editor- and authorship, the 'Cornils/Herrmann' is beyond common standards.

"Anyone with a research or teaching interest in homogeneous catalysis, organometallic chemistry, or organic synthesis will find this book extremely valuable. If your library didn't get the two-volume edition, it should get this one." the alchemist - online
Geoffrey Wilkinson, Imperial College London:
'The present book covers the full range of homogeneous catalysis, with an emphasis on existing industrial applications and those yet to come. The text has been organized such that it will be of interest to both advanced students as well as scientists in academia and industry ...'
