Based on the author's extensive experience in both teaching and industrial practice this monograph gives real insight into many new and old reactions of importance. Although the focus is conceptual, many key industrial processes and applications that are important in the laboratory synthesis of organic chemicals are used as examples. The full range of topics is covered, such as fine chemicals, bulk chemicals, polymers, high-tech polymers, pharmaceuticals, but also important techniques and reaction types among other aspects. Each chapter starts with the basic knowledge and ends with up-to-date concepts. Homogeneous Catalysis: Understanding the Art provides a balanced overview of the vibrant and growing field of homogeneous catalysis to chemists trained in different disciplines and to graduate students who take catalysis as a main or secondary subject.

Industry Reviews

From the reviews:

"Van Leeuwen deals with the subject thoroughly and logically. He helps to pull together all the various strands, with very accessible sections ... . this is an extremely interesting and useful book for a wide range of practising chemists. It is both an excellent place to start and, for those closer to the subject ... it is a good reference book." (Duncan MacQuarrie, Chemistry World, Vol. 2 (9), September, 2005)
