Organo Catalysis Using Bronsted Acids (Hardcover) (Ju00e9ru00f4me Blanchet & Jacques Rouden)
About this item
Organo Catalysis Using Bronsted Acids covers the recent development in asymmetric catalysis involving chiral Bronsted acids that generally prevent the use of toxic or expensive transition metals. The authors draw upon their synthesis, the availability of the catalyst, and the acidity scale. The synthetic scope of each catalyst is evaluated with recent examples of original chemical reactions.
As the field of asymmetric catalysis is evolving dramatically, and with the recent discovery of new and efficient chiral Bronsted acids, there has been a rejuvenation in new asymmetric transformations in very mild conditions that are in agreement with the concept of green chemistry. This book is an essential reference with extensive coverage of this growing research area.
- Explores recent developments in asymmetric catalysis for more selective, milder, and environmentally-friendly processes based on the use of original chiral Bronsted acids
- Provides important updates from the recent field of research
- Focuses on chiral Bronsted acids
