about this item

Ligand Design in Metal Chemistry assembles a collection of cutting-edge chapters documenting the breadth and depth of modern ligand design, in diverse areas such as dinitrogen fixation, polymer synthesis, asymmetric catalysis, cross-coupling and proton reduction chemistry. The concept of ligand design for tuning the structural and reactivity properties of complexes is presented alongside discussions of recent advances and applications to highlight the principles discussed. The book will provide an overview of a variety of approaches to comparable chemistries, while drawing attention to the impact of the ligand environment upon reactivity trends.

Topics covered include:
• Pincer ligands
• Redox non-innocent ligands
• Ligand design in modern lanthanide chemistry
• New ligation strategies for supporting reactive heterobimetallics and cluster complexes
• Tripodal ligands in tuning metal reactivity
• Ligand design for catalytic bond activation
• Ligand design in polymerization
• Ligands in cross-coupling
• Carbene ligand design
• Supramolecular ligands
• Cooperative metal-ligand reactivity
• Large biomolecules as chiral ligands
• Ligand design in energy catalysis

This book will be a valuable reference source for professors, students, researchers and practitioners wishing to learn more about ligand design with applications in organic and pharmaceutical synthesis, as well as polymerization catalysis and applications in energy production.
