Pincer Compounds: Chemistry and Applications
Elsevier Science, Apr 11, 2018 - Science - 754 pages
Pincer Compounds: Chemistry and Applications offers valuable state-of-the-art coverage highlighting highly active areas of research-from mechanistic work to synthesis and characterization. The book focuses on small molecule activation chemistry (particularly H2 and hydrogenation), earth abundant metals (such as Fe), actinides, carbene-pincers, chiral catalysis, and alternative solvent usage. The book covers the current state of the field, featuring chapters from renowned contributors, covering four continents and ranging from still-active pioneers to new names emerging as creative strong contributors to this fascinating and promising area.
Over a decade since the publication of Morales-Morales and Jensen's The Chemistry of Pincer Compounds (Elsevier 2007), research in this unique area has flourished, finding a plethora of applications in almost every single branch of chemistry-from their traditional application as very robust and active catalysts all the way to potential biological and pharmaceutical applications.
