Non-covalent Interactions in Organocatalysis (Hardcover) (Vincent Barbier & Olivier R. P. David)
About this item
Non-covalent Interactions in Organocatalysis describes the nature and magnitude of non-covalent interactions in a pedagogical way to assist the reader in building knowledge of the foundations and methods in the field. As very recent examples of organocatalytic reactions rely on subtle control of the reactivity and selectivity by adjustment of non-covalent interactions, this book is a welcome source. In addition, as the last few years have seen the dramatic growth of halogen-interactions with manifold applications in organocatalysis, the authors' focus on the importance of organocatalytic transformations of these interactions is timely and informative.
- Provides a condensed presentation of non-covalent interactions from the field of organic chemistry
- Features the classic literature of organocatalysis in each chapter
- Covers the most recently introduced halogen-bond types of interactions
- Focuses on the importance of organocatalytic transformations of these interactions, with each type being illustrated by milestones
