Description - Mechanisms in Homogeneous Catalysis by Brian Heaton

While chemists using spectroscopic methods need to learn from the specialists, they do not normally read the spectroscopists' original papers. This book provides this very information - summarizing some recent advances in the mechanistic understanding of metallocene polymerization catalysts and the role of NMR spectroscopy in these endeavors. Adopting a real practice-oriented approach, the authors focus on two of the most important spectroscopic techniques with two parts devoted to each of NMR and IR spectroscopy - as well as on important industrial applications with regard to the reaction discussed. Rather than providing a complete and exhaustive review of homogeneous hydrogenation and its detailed mechanisms, the book focuses on the specific spectroscopic techniques and the mechanistic information that has been obtained from their application. The result is unique in its scope, allowing chemists from different fields to learn which techniques can be applied for their specific synthetic problems. The prizewinning editor, Professor Brian Heaton, is the key player in the field, and has brought together here a team of authors to cater for specialists, and researchers in industry and academia.

Author Biography - Brian Heaton

Brian Heaton was born in the Lake District (north west of England) from where many Inorganic Chemistry Professors originate. He was one of Professor Joe Chatt's first research students at the University of Sussex (1964-67) and then moved to the University of Kent at Canterbury where he developed his multinuclear NMR expertise. In 1985, he became Grant Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Liverpool and has been one of the pioneers in the development of High Pressure NMR measurements to spectroscopically characterise intermediates in the catalytic cycle of homogeneous transition metal catalysed reactions; he has recently reported only the second example of the complete spectroscopic characterisation of all the intermediates in a catalytic cycle, viz the Pd-catalysed methoxycarbonylation of ethene.
