The first volume in the series to concentrate on organo-lithium compounds - the sub series "The chemistry of the metal-carbon bond" (5 vols).
This is the first volume in the series to concentrate on organo-lithium compounds - the sub series "The chemistry of the metal-carbon bond" (5 vol) treated organometallics in general. It deals with theoretical/physical/computational apsects, as well as major spectroscopies, such as MS, NMR, IR/UV etc and both biological and industrial applications.* The core of the volume is the synthetic chapters with lots of examples for modern synthetic approaches* Written by key researchers in the field* An invaluable reference source to organic chemists working in academia and industry* Features important reagents in organic synthesis
