Topics covered in depth include:
- preparation and structure of diazo compounds
- kinetics and mechanism of diazotizations
- reactions of diazo compounds
- applications in organic synthesis
- metal complexes with diazonium and diazo compounds
Many tables and reaction schemes as well as copious literature citations make this book a highly valuable reference work for synthetic organic chemists, inorganic chemists, organometallic chemists and industrial chemists.
Already available: Volume 1 of Diazo Chemistry covering aromatic and heteroaromatic compounds.
