Homogeneous catalyses promoted by transition metal complexes such as hydrogenation, isomerization, oligomerization, polymerization, olefin metathesis are described. Mechanistic aspects are also summarized by combination of fundamental reactions of organotransiton metal complexes. Asymmetric hydrogenation is also described.

Keywords: Hydrogenation, Isomerization, Oligomerization, Polymerization, Olefin Metathesis
