Copper in organic synthesis has seen a tremendous development over the past ten years. This text represents the most comprehensive survey on the use of Copper and Cuprates in organic synthesis. The first time that the Patai Series touches on Copper compounds, it contains contributions by leading experts, and delivers the quality expected from the Patai Series.
1. Theory of organocopper-mediated reactions (Eiichi Nakamura and Naohiko Yoshikai).

2. Structural organocopper chemistry (Gerard van Koten and Johann T. B. H. Jastrzebski).

3. Thermochemistry of organocopper compounds (Joel F. Liebman and Suzanne W. Slayden).

4. NMR spectra of organocopper compounds (Tobias Gärtner and Ruth M. Gschwind).

5. Photochemical transformations involving copper porphyrins and phthalocyanines (Natalia N. Sergeeva and Mathias O. Senge).

6. Electrochemistry of organocopper compounds (Jan S. Jaworski).

7. Gas-phase chemistry of organocopper compounds (Al Mokhtar Lamsabhi, Manuel Yáñez, Jean-Yves Salpin and Jeanine Tortajada).

8. Biochemistry of organocopper compounds (Martha E. Sosa-Torres, Juan Pablo Saucedo-Vázquez, Saul Gómez-Manzo and Peter M. H. Kroneck).

9. N -Functionalized organocuprates (R. Karl Dieter and Rhett T. Watson).

10. Transmetalation reactions producing organocopper compounds (Christopher J. Rosenker and Peter Wipf).

11. Carbocupration of alkynes (Fabrice Chemla and Franck Ferreira).

12. Oxidation of organocopper compounds (Sarah J. Aves and David R. Spring).

13. Copper-mediated asymmetric allylic alkylations (Claude Spino).

14. Copper-catalyzed enantioselective conjugate addition (Damien Polet and Alexandre Alexakis).

15. Copper(I) hydride reagents and catalysts (Olivier Riant).

16. Silyl and stannyl derivatives of organocopper compounds (Francisco J. Pulido and Asunción Barbero).

17. Copper-mediated and copper-catalyzed addition and substitution reactions of extended multiple bond systems (Norbert Krause and Özge Aksin-Artok).

18. Copper-mediated cross-coupling reactions (Liza Penn and Dmitri Gelman).

19. Fluorinated organocopper reagents (Charles R. Davis and Donald J. Burton).
