Organic Nanoreactors : From Molecular to Supramolecular Organic Compounds (Paperback)
about this item
Organic Nanoreactors: From Molecular to Supramolecular Organic Compounds provides a unique overview of synthetic porous compounds containing a reaction space which influences the movement and interactions among the molecules inside. Naturally occurring enzymes are compelling catalysts for selective reactions as their three-dimensional structures build up clefts, caves, or niches in which the active site is located. Additionally, reactive sites carrying special functional groups allow only specific reagents to react in a particular way, to lead to specific enantiomers as products. Equipped with suitable functional groups, nanoreactors then form a new class of bio-mimetic catalysts, which have multiple important applications in the synthesis of nanomaterials, enzyme immobilization, enzyme therapy, and more.
This volume addresses synthetic, organic nanoreactors, updating the previous decade of research and examining recent advances in the field. Tapping the Editor's experience in both academic research and industrial application, the book focuses on the properties and applications of nanoreactor compounds and materials, with brief overviews of synthetic routes and characterization methods. Covering well-known as well as some little-examined compounds,Organic Nanoreactors: From Molecular To Supramolecular Organic Compounds reviews the previous research in the field for the first comprehensive overview of this exciting group of compounds and their practical applications.
