Metals and Ligard Reactivity – An Introduction to the Organic Chemistry of Metal Complexes is available to download free in pdf / epub format.
This book is a highly readable introduction to the reactions of coordinated ligands, which have become a useful tool in organic synthesis. Bridging the gap between the traditional fields, this text presents the basic concepts of ligand reactivity as well as synthetic applications of these reactions. Topics covered include:
- Principles of metal-ligand interaction
- Reactions of coordinated ligands with nucleophiles and electrophiles
- Oxidation and reduction of coordinated ligands
- Cyclic and encapsulating ligands, template effect and supramolecular chemistry
