Description

Water is abundant in nature, non-toxic, non-flammable and renewable and could therefore be safer and economical for the chemical industry
wherever it is used as a solvent. This book provides a comprehensive overview of developments in the use of water as a solvent for metal
catalysis, illustrating the enormous potential of water in developing new catalytic transformations for fi ne chemicals and molecular materials
synthesis. A group of international experts cover the most important metalcatalyzed reactions in water and bring together cutting-edge results
from recent literature with the first-hand knowledge gained by the chapter authors. This is a must-have book for scientists in academia
and industry involved in the fi eld of catalysis, greener organic synthetic methods, water soluble ligands and catalyst design, as well as for teachers and students interested in innovative and sustainable chemistry.
