A succinct review of the essential concepts of organometallic chemistry


In Organometallics and Catalysis, author Manfred Bochmann distills the extensive knowledge of the field that has been amassed in recent years into a succinct review of the essential concepts. It is enriched throughout by examples that demonstrate how our understanding of organometallic chemistry has led to new applications in research and industry--not least in relation to catalysis--and an extensive art program clarifies the concepts being explained.

Striking just the right balance between breadth and depth, Organometallics and Catalysis is the perfect introduction for students who need a thorough grounding in the subject.


  • Strikes the right balance between breadth and depth
  • Written by an experienced educator, researcher and author to provide a uniformly authoritative yet easy-to-digest resource
  • Custom-drawn art helps students visualize even the most challenging of concepts
  • Key points and questions throughout the text help to reinforce understanding

About the Author(s)

Manfred Bochmann is Professor of Inorganic Chemistry and Director of the Wolfson Materials and Catalysis Centre at the University of East Anglia, where his research centres broadly around synthetic organometallic and coordination chemistry directed towards homogeneous catalysis. A former Head of the School of Chemistry, in 2003 he was awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry Medal for Organometallic Chemistry. Bochmann is the author of two Oxford Chemistry Primers on organometallic chemistry, and is an Associate Editor of the journal Organometallics.
