Science of Synthesis: Cross Coupling and Heck-Type Reactions Vol. 1
In "Science of Synthesis: Cross Coupling and Heck-Type Reactions", expert authors present and discuss the best and most reliable methods currently available for the formation of new carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds using these reactions, highlighted with representative experimental procedures. Together, the three volumes of Cross Coupling and Heck-Type Reactions provide an extensive overview of the current state of the art in this field of central importance in modern chemistry, and are an invaluable resource for the practicing synthetic organic chemist.
This volume covers carbon-carbon bond formation, and, as a widely acknowledged recognition of the importance of the transformations described herein, virtually all of the chemistry described in this volume has achieved "Name Reaction" stature, and the chapters are organized accordingly. Thus, Suzuki-Miyaura reactions, Hiyama cross coupling, Stille coupling, Negishi coupling, and finally Kumada coupling are discussed in sequence, with a particular emphasis on breadth of scope rather than detailed minutiae.
