About Author

Boy Cornils has worked at the Ruhrchemie AG in Oberhausen, Germany, where homogeneous catalysis started with the hydroformylation reaction found by Otto Roelen, and with the former Hoechst AG in Frankfurt, Germany. In both locations he was director of the research. He is editor of several bestselling titles. Wolfgang A. Herrmann is president of the Technical University of Munich and has received several awards for his work in organometallic chemistry, like the Otto-Bayer Medal, the ACS Award in Organometallic Chemistry, the Werner-Heisenberg Medal of the Alexander von Humboldt foundation and many more. He has authored a plethora of publications and is the editor of numerous bestselling books. Matthias Beller is director of the Leibniz-Institute for Catalysis and Professor for Catalysis at the University of Rostock. He has received several awards such as the Otto-Roelen Medal, the Leibniz-Price of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, the first European Price for Sustainable Chemistry, the Emil Fischer Medal and the Wohler Price of the German Chemical Society and the Gay-Lussac-Alexander-von-Humboldt Price. Rocco Paciello is a research manager at BASF SE in Ludwigshafen, Germany. After experience as a research chemist and assistant plant manager, he became responsible for the homogeneous catalysis group at BASF and has led it for the last fifteen years. The group is focused on finding new technical applications of transition metal catalyzed homogeneous catalysis, such as hydroformylations, carbonylations and hydrogenations.
