  • The long awaited Handbook for all synthetic chemists working on coupling reactions, compiling all major catalyst components in use in the area.
  • Consists of a compilation of articles taken from the EROS database, with the inclusion of about 20 newly commissioned catalysts/pre-catalysts/ligands that have made an impact in this area of synthetic organic chemistry.
  • Includes catalyst systems used in Heck, Kumada-Tamao-Corriu, Suzuki-Miyaura, Hiyama-Hatanaka, Negishi, Migita-Kosugi-Stille, Buchwald-Hartwig, and Tsuji-Trost coupling reactions.
