Comprehensive Organometallic Chemystry III. Volume 11
The availability of remarkably efficient search engines has made the access to the relevant literature and specific facts remarkably quick and efficient, but the information retrieved is not always refereed, checked or placed in its appropriate context. As Henry Kissinger  has remarked: "The computer has solved the problem of storing knowledge and making a vast amount of data available. Simultaneously, it exacts the price of shrinking [one's] perspective". In this latest edition of Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry we have tried to engage the best minds in the field to sift the literature in their area of expertise and distill it down to produce a readable summary of the essential material. We have instructed them to be comprehensive in their coverage and authoritative in their approach and thereby maintain the standard and reputation of the original Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry published in 1982 and the Second Edition published in 1995. Both editions were edited by Professors Abel, Stone and Wilkinson. This Third Edition of Comprehensive Organometallic Chemistry (COMC-III) builds on the two previous collections and incorporates a vast amount of new knowledge published since 1993, and simultaneously interprets the developments by providing general and significant insights by leading experts in the field.
