Editorial Reviews

Review

To anyone who wants to engage in this line of research, this text will serve as the single best source for all the essential information. --T.V. RajanBabu, The Ohio State University

This book is destined to be the go-to resource for the field of tranisition metal organometallic chemistry for many years to come. It will undoubtedly find a place on the bookshelf of virtually every organic and inorganic chemist, alongside classics like March's Advanced Organic Chemistry and Cotton and Wilkinson's Advanced Inorganic Chemistry. --Journal of the American Chemical Society

The most notable applications of organometallic chemistry in the past two decades have been characterized by the use of fundamental aspects of structure, bonding and reactivity. To anyone who wants to engage in this line of research, this text will serve as the single best source for all the essential information. ----T.V. RajanBabu, The Ohio State University

About the Author

John F. Hartwig is the Henry Rapoport Chair in Organic Chemistry and Professor of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley. Professor Hartwig received his A. B. degree from Princeton and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. Subsequently, he was an American Cancer Society Postdoctoral Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, joined the Yale University faculty in 1992, and joined the University of Illinois chemistry faculty in July 2006. Professor Hartwig s research focuses on the discovery and mechanistic understanding of organic reactions catalyzed by organometallic complexes. He was one of the originators of palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions to form carbon-heteroatom bonds, as well as palladium-catalyzed coupling of enolates and catalytic functionalization of the terminal C-H bonds in alkanes. He was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 2012, and was the recipient of the 2008 Mukaiyama Award from the Society of Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Japan, the 2008 International Catalysis Award from the International Association of Catalysis Societies, the 2008 Paul N. Rylander Award of the Organic Reactions Catalysis Society, the 2007 Tetrahedron Young Investigator Award in Organic Synthesis, the 2007 Raymond and Beverly Sackler Prize in the Physical Sciences, and the 2006 ACS Award in Organometallic Chemistry.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a must-have for anybody doing organometallic chemistry. At 1100 pages, it provides vital information for most areas of organometallic chemistry. This book is very up-to-date, the end of each chapter lists an average of 300+ references that are superscripted in the text. Written predominantly by the master of organometallic chemistry, Professor Hartwig writes in an easy-to-read manner with useful reaction schemes and figures on nearly every page. The sections not written by Hartwig are written by other experts in the field. I can't recommend this book enough, it will make a great contribution to any organic/organometallic chemists bookshelf.

Format: Hardcover
The book was on the suggested reading for my second semester of inorganic chemistry offered at my university. The book flows well unlike some of the books in chemistry and hard sciences in general (it almost read like a novel). The book focuses on reactions to illustrate various concepts (some of my classmates liked this approach, some didn't). Also, the book is extensive: it reserves 10 chapters for reactions that other books treat in a 1-3 chapters. A great majority of the concepts necessary for understanding the reactions and other concepts in the book are included as a form of short reviews. The downside of the book is that it has no problems. Nevertheless, it makes it up by an extensive number of examples and references (references are included at the end of each chapter and can range anywhere from 30 to 500). Although it would be possible to read the book with two semesters of organic chemistry and some knowledge of M.O. theory, I wouldn't recommend this book as a starting point for inorganic chemistry. I recommend reading Huheey's "Inorganic Chemistry" (Chapters 11-15) and DeKock and Gray's "Chemical Structure and Bonding" before reading this book. Although there are some instances where group theory is used in the book, I don't think it necessary to understand group theory extensively to read this text. However, if you want to learn about group theory I suggest Robert L. Carter's "Molecular Symmetry and Group Theory."

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Warren Christopher Boyd on November 25, 2013
Format: Hardcover
If you're a practitioner or serious student of organometallic, organic, or inorganic chemistry, this book is an absolute must-have. Many current organometallic texts focus on explaining basic principles of the subject, but leave detailed discussion of reaction scope, exceptions to trends, etc. to specialized monographs. The beauty of Hartwig's book is that it both clearly explains the basics and discusses, in depth, the "messy" exceptions to the rules that are so important for researchers to be aware of. The chapters in the second half of the book, focusing on important catalytic processes, read like exceptionally clear and well-written review articles. The only serious omission, in my view, is a lack of end-of-chapter problems. An absolutely indispensable book, especially when used alongside a detailed, symmetry-based discussion of molecular orbital theory, such as "Orbital Interactions in Chemistry" by Albright, Burdett, and Whangbo.

If you're looking for a reference text in the field of organometallic chemistry, this book is an excellent option. It has a lot of references that may help if you want to get deeper in some topics. It would be great if some problems were included, but despite that, it's a good book (heavy, big, but a good book).

Format: Hardcover
This expensive book is not for students. Best for library reference section and for advanced researchers. However material is almost error free. Also it will leave a beginner hate organometallic chemistry as there is no proper organization. No problems or exercises or their solutions
