Description

This new book on this hot topic summarizes the key achievements for the synthesis and catalytic applications of pincer and pincer-type complexes, providing readers with the latest research highlights.
The editors have assembled an international team of leaders in the field, and their contributions focus on the application of various pincer complexes in modern organic synthesis and catalysis, such as C-C and C-X bond forming reactions, C-H bond functionalization, and the activation of small molecules, as well as asymmetric catalysis.
A must-have for every synthetic chemist in both academia and industry intending to develop new catalysts and improved synthetic protocols.
