Electrochemistry no longer is a specialist discipline, but has become a technique of major importance for most inorganic and organometallic chemists. Similarly, electron-transfer activation has led to great progress in transition-metal mediated organic and inorganic syntheses. This book provides a unique introduction and overview of the structure and reactions of transition-metal radicals, of transition-metal electrochemistry, and of electron-transfer activation, with emphasis on catalytic processes. Each chapter of this book includes numerous citations of the chemical literature, lots of examples and illustrations and the book is written in an extremely readable style. It will serve as a useful tutorial for a wide spectrum of students, chemists, and chemical engineers involved in organic, inorganic, and organometallic chemistry.

Editorial Reviews

An introduction and overview of electron-transfer reactions and odd- electron transition-metal chemistry, for advanced university students, transition-metal chemists, and biochemists, as well as researchers interested in electron-transfer catalysis, synthetic applications, and molecular materials. The volume is divided into two parts: theory, techniques, structures, and molecular electronics; and mechanisms, catalysis, and applications to organic synthesis. The literature is covered until the middle of 1994; a few important late-1994 references are included. Includes numerous tables, schemes, and figures. The foreword is by Nobel laureate Henry Taube.
