Transition Metal Catalysed Reactions
A "Chemistry for the 21st Century Monograph".

S. Murahashi, S. G. Davies, eds.

Blackwell Science, 1999 [ISBN 0-632-05126-4]

From practical, economic and environmental standpoints transition metal catalysed reactions are set to dominate the chemical industry in the 21st century. Therefore, it is not surprising that the field of transition metal catalysis has been and will remain at the forefront of both the academic and industrial arenas. This generously illustrated and beautifully presented monograph offers a snapshot of some of the progress that has been made to date in a few selected area of transition metal catalysis while providing tantalising glimpses of what is still to be achieved. The book covers several major areas within the field of transition metal catalysis: the part that solvents play in chemical reactions influencing the rate and selectivity of catalysts; the impact of transition metal catalysis in the area of carbon-carbon bond forming processes; the revolutionary effect of transition metal catalysis on aromatic substitution involving the formation of carbon-carbon bonds; allylation reactions in transition metal catalysis; the use of organotransition metal complexes to promote the formation of carbon-oxygen bonds; the formation of organoboron compounds via carbon-boron bond formation. Transition metal catalysed reactions are already established as an important part of the synthetic chemists arsenal. It is hoped that this monograph will serve as a catalyst to encourage the revelation, through the 21st Century, of their as yet untapped real potential for synthesis.
