Summary and Info
The authoritative reference on organopalladium compounds, designed for synthetic chemists Transition metals and their complexes represent one of the most important groups of catalysts for organic reactions. Among these, palladium has emerged as one of the most versatile catalysts in modern organic synthesis. The Handbook of Organopalladium Chemistry for Organic Synthesis is the first comprehensive and authoritative handbook on organopalladium reagents and catalysts. Editor Ei-ichi Negishi assembles contributions from several dozen international authorities on the use of palladium reagents and catalysts. The Handbook' s contents are organized by reaction type, making the two-volume handbook of maximum utility to the bench synthetic chemist. Chapter topics include: Palladium Compounds: Stoichiometric Preparation, In Situ Generation, and Some Physical and Chemical PropertiesPalladium-Catalyzed Reactions Involving Reductive Elimination: Cross-CouplingCarbopalladation and Related ReactionsPalladium-Catalyzed Reactions Involving Nucleophilic Attack on LigandsPalladium-Catalyzed Carbonylation and Other Related Reactions Involving Migratory InsertionPalladium-Catalyzed Hydrogenation and Related Reduction ReactionsPalladium-Catalyzed Oxidation ReactionsRearrangement and Other Miscellaneous Reactions Catalyzed by PalladiumTechnological Developments in Organopalladium Chemistry Professionals in pharmaceutical, fine chemicals, biotechnology, and agricultural industries, as well as graduate students interested in synthetic organic chemistry, will find the Handbook of Organopalladium Chemistry for Organic Synthesis an indispensable reference.
