Most widely held works by George A Olah
Beyond oil and gas : the methanol economy by George A Olah( Book )

27 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this masterpiece, the renowned chemistry Nobel Laureate, George A. Olah and his colleagues discuss in a clear and readily accessible manner the use of methanol as a viable alternative to our diminishing fossil fuel resources. They look at the pros and cons of our current main energy sources, namely oil and natural gas, and varied renewable energies, and new ways to overcome obstacles. Following an introduction, Olah, Goeppert and Prakash look at the interrelation of fuels and energy, and at the extent of our non-renewable fossil fuel resources. Despite the diminishing reserve and global war
Hydrocarbon chemistry by George A Olah( Book )

31 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All chapters have been updated by adding sections on recent developments to review new advances and results. Essential reading for practising scientists in industry, polymer and catalytic chemists, as well as researchers and graduate students, Hydrocarbon Chemistry, Second Edition remains the benchmark text in its field."--Jacket
Carbonium ions by George A Olah( Book )

33 editions published between 1961 and 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedel-Crafts and related reactions by George A Olah( Book )

6 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hypercarbon chemistry by G. K. Surya Prakash( Book )

25 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essential new edition of the book that put hypercarbon chemistry on the map A comprehensive and contemporary treatment of the chemistry of hydrocarbons (alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, and aromatics) towards electrophiles, Hypercarbon Chemistry, Second Edition deals with all major aspects of such chemistry involved in hydrocarbon transformations, and of the structural and reaction chemistry of carboranes, mixed hydrides in which both carbon and boron atoms participate in the polyhedral molecular frameworks. Despite the firmly established tetravalency, carbon can bond simultaneously to five or more other atoms. "Hypercarbon" bonding permeates much organic, inorganic and organometallic chemistry, and the book serves as the compendium for this phenomenon. Copious diagrams illustrate the rich variety of hypercarbon structures now known, and patterns therein. Individual chapters deal with specific categories of compound (e.g. organometallics, carboranes, carbocations) or transformations that proceed through transient hypercarbon species, detailing fundamental chemistry, including reactivity, selectivity, stereochemistry, mechanistic factors and more

Carbocation chemistry( Book )

11 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study of carbocation chemistry has become one of the most fascinating and fruitful areas in organic chemistry. Carbocation Chemistry assembles the most current information on this wide-ranging topic, and is a reference for academics and practitioners around the world - and across the scientific spectrum."--Jacket
Cage hydrocarbons( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by a symposium held at the University of Southern California, March 1988, dedicated to Paul von R. Schleyer. Contributors examine the role of "hypercarbons'' in several areas of chemistry, systematically covering the multicenter bonding of "hypercarbons'' relative to the chemistry of main group elements, organometallics, cluster chemistry, carbocations, and hydrocarbon chemistry
Synthetic fluorine chemistry( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superelectrophiles and their chemistry by George A Olah( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This reference presents a comprehensive review and discussion of the substantial experimental and theoretical work in the field of superelectrophiles and their reactions in recent years. In addition to a discussion of the basics of this emerging field, this book includes tools to help the reader apply the chemistry."--Jacket

14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first edition of Superacid Chemistry, published in 1985, became the definitive work in the field. - Since that time, however, the field has grown exponentially, with the development of new superacid systems and innovative superacid applications. - This Second Edition has been published to bring this acclaimed book fully up to date with all these new developments."--BOOK JACKET
Onium ions by George A Olah( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Olah joins forces with coauthors Kenneth Laali, Qi Wang, and G.K. Surya Prakash to offer an in-depth look at the chemistry and reactions of these important electron-deficient compounds. While other texts have covered various individual types of onium ions, this work addresses the structure and chemistry of numerous different classes of onium ions. Enriched with numerous illustrations and a full listing of references for each chapter, Onium Ions should be a staple text in the professional chemist's library
Electron deficient boron and carbon clusters by George A Olah( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chemistry of energetic materials by George A Olah( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of energetic materials is emerging from one primarily directed toward practical interests to an advanced area of fundamental research, where state-of-the-art methods and theory are used side by side with modern synthetic methods. This timely book integrates the recent experimental, synthetic, and theoretical research of energetic materials. Editors George Olah and David Squire emphasize the importance of structure and mechanism in determining properties and performances. They also explore new spectrometric methods and synthetic approaches in this useful reference. Key Featu
