Applied Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis has two main objectives: to provide an overview of the influence of organometallic chemistry on homogeneous and heterogenous catalysis, and to provide an account of the principle commercial applications of homogeneous catalysis in industry. The first chapter provides some background to the subject, looking at the vital role that catalysis plays in the production of fuels and pharmaceuticals, amongst other things. The next chapter covers mechanistic organometallic chemistry. Chapter Three is related to hydroformylation and related reactions. The chapter that follows examines acetic acid and acetyl chemicals. The next two chapters look at nylon intermediates: buta- 1,3-diene hydrocyanation and olefin oligomerization and polymerization. The final chapter is about fine chemicals manufacture.
