Noble Metal Noble Value: Ru-, Rh-, Pd-catalyzed Heterocycle Synthesis, Hardback Book

Noble Metal Noble Value: Ru-, Rh-, Pd-catalyzed Heterocycle Synthesis Hardback

Edited by Xiao-Feng Wu

Part of the Catalytic Science Series series


Heterocyclic chemistry constitutes the largest branch of chemistry, covering almost two-thirds of literature in the field.

In addition, around 90% of naturally-occurring molecules have heterocycles as their core structure.

Therefore, as a central part of organic chemistry, the discovery of new methodologies in synthesizing heterocyclic compounds is essential to their continued application and development.

Transition metal catalysts offer a low cost and often low toxicity pathway for heterocycles synthesis, while the use of noble metals represents an alternative form of experimentation which is discussed in the book.Noble Metals, Noble Value provides the first comprehensive analysis of the applications of the noble metals of ruthenium (Ru), rhodium (Rh) and palladium (Pd) catalysts in heterocycles synthesis.

Pairs of chapters are dedicated to summarizing each of the metals when applied to either five- or six-membered heterocyclic syntheses.

An introduction to the importance of heterocycles and possible procedures for the preparation of heterocyclic compounds is also given.With up to date research and findings, this review is excellently suited to academics and professionals in the field of chemistry, with a particular focus on the specialities of biological, catalytic and organic chemistry.
