Maurice Brookhart: A Legacy to Organometallic Chemistry

Anne M. LaPointe and Pedro J. Pérez. Organometallics 2022, 41, 3073-3083

In this editorial, we have summarized a few highlights of Maurice Brookhart’s many contributions to organometallic chemistry and described how the different areas of research developed and evolved throughout Brook’s career. Brookhart’s scientific achievements are outstanding, and his legacy as a mentor and collaborator is equally noteworthy. On the occasion of his 80th birthday, we are delighted to be able to revisit some of Brook’s “greatest hits” for a new audience and provide a platform for sharing the research of others whose work has been inspired by Brook’s example.
