Contemporary Carbene Chemistry

By Michael P. Doyle

Presents the main cutting edge leads to carbene chemistry, environment the root for brand spanking new discoveries and applications

The discovery of good carbenes has reinvigorated carbene chemistry learn, with investigators looking to increase carbenes into new worthy catalysts and ligands. proposing the main cutting edge and promising parts of carbene study during the last decade, this ebook explores newly came upon structural, catalytic, and organometallic points of carbene chemistry, with an emphasis on new and rising artificial applications.

Contemporary Carbene Chemistry gains contributions from a global staff of pioneering carbene chemistry researchers. jointly, those authors have highlighted the main fascinating and promising components of research within the box. The ebook is split into parts:

  • Part 1, homes and Reactions of Carbenes, explores new findings on carbene balance, acid-base habit, and catalysis. Carbenic constitution and reactivity are tested in chapters devoted to strong carbenes, carbodicarbenes, carbenes as visitors in supramolecular hosts, tunneling in carbene and oxacarbene reactions, and ultrafast kinetics of carbenes and their excited kingdom precursors. Theoretical matters are addressed in chapters on computational tools and dynamics utilized to carbene reactions.
  • Part 2, steel Carbenes, is devoted to the bogus dimensions of carbenes, quite the reactions and catalytic houses of steel carbenes. The authors speak about lithium, rhodium, ruthenium, chromium, molybdenum, tungsten, cobalt, and gold.

All the chapters finish with a precis of the present state of affairs, new demanding situations at the horizon, and promising new examine instructions. a listing of key studies and recommendations for extra studying additionally accompanies each chapter.

Each quantity of the Wiley sequence on Reactive Intermediates in Chemistry and Biology makes a speciality of a selected reactive intermediate, supplying a extensive variety of views from prime specialists that units the degree for brand spanking new purposes and additional discoveries.
