A contemporary compilation of recent achievements inorganometallic chemistry The prestigious International Conference on OrganometallicChemistry (ICOMC) was launched in 1963, providing a forum forresearchers from around the world to share their findings andexplore new paths to advance our knowledge and application oforganometallic chemistry. The 25th ICOMC, held in Lisbon in 2012,gathered more than 1,200 participants from 54 countries. Thisvolume celebrates the 25th Silver Edition and the 50th Gold Year ofthe ICOMC. Featuring contributions from invited 25th ICOMC speakers,Advances in Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysishighlights recent achievements and new and emerging areas ofresearch in the field. Its seven sections cover: Activation and Functionalization of Carbon Single Bonds andSmall Molecules Organometallic Synthesis and Catalysis Organometallic Polymerization Catalysis Organometallic Polymers and Materials Organometallic Chemistry and Sustainable Energy Bioorganometallic Chemistry Organometallic Electrochemistry Chapters discuss fundamental underlying concepts, offerillustrative examples and cases, and explore future avenues forcontinued research. Readers will discover basic principles andproperties of organometallic compounds, reaction mechanisms, anddetailed descriptions of current applications. Collectively, thesechapters underscore the versatility, richness, and potential ofmodern organometallic chemistry, including its interrelationshipswith other scientific disciplines. All the contributions are extensively referenced, providing agateway to the most important original research papers and reviewsin organometallic chemistry. Presenting a contemporaryunderstanding of organometallic chemistry and its manyapplications, Advances in Organometallic Chemistry andCatalysis is recommended for all researchers in the field, fromstudents to advanced investigators.
