"In summary, this timely and detailed book brings the subject right up to date, with chapters from international leaders in the areas discussed, and should be read by everyone who works on homogeneous catalysis - not only those who might be looking carefully at their reagent procurement costs, but in particular those who might be looking for some exciting new intellectual challenges for scientific investigation. Highly recommended."  (Applied Organometallic Chemistry, 1 July 2015)

"In summary, this monograph gives a good overview on the present state of the art in applying non-precious metal catalysts for a variety of applications. This is a fast moving area of research and for some reactions even better results have been produced in the last one or two years. This does by no means detracts from the value of this monograph, but indicates that the future of the field might look even brighter." (ChemCatChem, 2011)

"However, that is unlikely to put off the target audience for whom this book would be useful as a library resource, to dip into as and when needed, rather than an essential read for researchers in this field". (Chemistry World, 1 May 2011)

"The 306-page hardcover book summarizes recent progress in the field, pointing to how new catalysts may ultimately supplant precious metals in some types of reactions. Also, the book goes on to highlight the remaining chemical challenges and areas in need of further study". (Fuel Cell Works, 21 December 2010)

"A new book edited by Dr. Morris Bullock of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory summarizes the progress and challenges of designing catalysts from less expensive, more abundant metals . . . also, the book goes on to highlight the remaining chemical challenges and areas in need of further study. The book was written by experts from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and China." (Technology Today, 20 December 2010)
