The most current information on growing field of copper catalysis
Copper Catalysis in Organic Synthesis contains an up-to-date overview of the most important reactions in the presence of copper catalysts. The contributors—noted experts on the topic—provide an introduction to the field of copper catalysis, reviewing its development, scope, and limitations, as well as providing descriptions of various homo- and cross-coupling reactions. In addition, information is presented on copper-catalyzed C–H activation, amination, carbonylation, trifluoromethylation, cyanation, and click reactions.
Comprehensive in scope, the book also describes microwave-assisted and multi-component transformations as well as copper-catalyzed reactions in green solvents and continuous flow reactors. The authors highlight the application of copper catalysis in asymmetric synthesis and total synthesis of natural products and heterocycles as well as nanocatalysis. This important book:
- Examines copper and its use in organic synthesis as a more cost-effective and sustainable for researchers in academia and industry
- Offers the first up-to-date book to explore copper as a first line catalyst for many organic reactions
- Presents the most significant developments in the area, including cross-coupling reactions, C–H activation, asymmetric synthesis, and total synthesis of natural products and heterocycles
- Contains over 20 contributions from leaders in the field
Written for catalytic chemists, organic chemists, natural products chemists, pharmaceutical chemists, and chemists in industry, Copper Catalysis in Organic Synthesis offers a book on the growing field of copper catalysis, covering cross-coupling reactions, C–H activation, and applications in the total synthesis of natural products.
