The Handbook of Reagents for Organic Synthesis: Catalytic Oxidation Reagents is part of the Handbook for Reagents for Organic Synthesis series, making use of the leading reagent database e-EROS. It provides concise and informative articles written by experts in the area and provides comprehensive referencing to the original literature. As is the standard format for EROS, each article also contains an overview of the synthesis and physical properties of the catalysts, conditions for its storage, and purification methods.
The Handbook compiles essential reagents in this area, starting with an introductory section discussing the main classes of oxidation catalysts, followed by an alphabetical list of reagents, with an attempt to keep families of catalysts organized by related chemistry for ease of use. The Handbook concludes with a list of contributors and a detailed index.
The Handbook of Reagents for Organic Synthesis: Catalytic Oxidation Reagents if of interest for everyone engaged in the area of sustainable chemistry, fuel alternatives research for the generation of energy, and synthetic chemists working in pharmaceutical industries and medicinal chemistry.
- Builds on the success of the previously published Handbooks of Reagents for Organic Synthesis
- Oxidations are the most frequently used steps in organic synthesis
- Catalysts for oxidation reactions are the key for green or sustainable chemistry
- Oxidation, the addition of oxygen to biomolecules, is key for the metabolism of humans and animals
- Oxidations of carbohydrates from simple organic compounds are the key for new renewable energies
