This book serves as a resource for researchers wishing to do chemistry with silver cations, an area that stands in the shadow of gold chemistry, but is quite powerful and ultimately less expensive. It contains experimental procedures that serve as a useful guide for first attempts in working with silver cations. Written by a well-respected, highly visible authority in the field, this is the first book addressing silver cation catalysis in organic chemistry, providing a much-needed resource on mechanisms, methods, advantages, and efficiencies in organometallic synthesis.
