Description

Rhodium has proven to be an extremely useful metal due to its ability to catalyze an array of synthetic transformations, with quite often-unique selectivity. Hydrogenation, C-H activation, allylic substitution, and numerous other reactions are catalyzed by this metal, which presumably accounts for the dramatic increase in the number of articles that have recently emerged on the topic.

P. Andrew Evans, the editor of this much-needed book, has assembled an internationally renowned team to present the first comprehensive coverage of this important area. The book features contributions from leaders in the field of rhodium-catalyzed reactions, and thereby provides a detailed account of the most current developments, including:

Rhodium-Catalyzed Asymmetric Hydrogenation (Zhang)
Rhodium-Catalyzed Hydroborations and Related Reactions (Brown)
Rhodium-Catalyzed Asymmetric Addition of Organometallic Reagents to Electron Deficient Olefins (Hayashi)

""... this timely book is a concisely written and highly valuable reference that will find widespread use by scientists ...""
Journal of the American Chemical Society

""Directed towards graduate students and synthetic chemists at all levels in academia and industry, it represents an attempt to bring together and categorize, in a systematic and comprehensive manner, a very disparate collection of numerous rhodium-catalysed organic reactions... Although not exhaustive the coverage does provide an excellent perspective on the enormous and wide-ranging activity associated with the application of rhodium catalysis in synthetic organic chemistry. The book is well-written and presented... The book contains an excellent, comprehensive index, which represents a refreshing change from many similar texts of this genre and such attention to detail is to be applauded. ...this book provides, in one volume, a detailed account of the range of current methodologies and applications in organic synthesis that are available using rhodium catalysts. It should therefore serve not only as an excellent reference text but also as an excellent source of ideas from which to develop further the ever-widening subject of rhodium catalysis by the practitioners of synthetic organic chemistry. Finally, the asking price ... for a volume of this sort seems entirely reasonable in present-day terms.
