About the book

The term transition, which is used for a series of elements, dates back to 1921. These metals are present in the middle of the periodic table and have been shaping human history and are the workhorses of the industry. These metals have several properties. They are harder compared to post-transition metals, make colorful chemical compounds with other elements and are less reactive than the alkaline earth metals. Some of the transition metals are necessary to keep humans healthy, such as iron, zinc, and chromium, etc.

The book highlights the chemistry of the transition metals, history, recent progress and challenges in the synthesis of transition metal-based metal oxide, organometallics, polymerization processes, hetero and homogeneous catalysts, size-controlled material synthesis, size-dependent properties, and applications of these materials.

This book aims to be a valuable addition to the literature on transition metal. Both students and experts will benefit alike from the diverse chapters of this book.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Josip Knapic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copy-editing and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
