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.
