This comprehensive handbook will be an indispensable research tool for chemists. Handbook of Palladium Catalysed Organic Reactions provides a synoptic description of the main types of reactions which are catalyzed by Palladium and the mechanism which causes these reactions. Each reaction is presented in graphical form and classified according to the type of transformation involved.
Other books covering the use of Palladium complexes as catalysts have been written, but the Handbook is the only to offer a synoptic view, showing the catalytic cycle of each reaction. This complete coverage provides the reader with a good understanding of the parameters involved. The tables included can be viewed from the point of view of the reagents, the product of the reaction, or the mechanism involved. The Handbook is a companion to the Database of Palladium Chemistry: Reactions andCatalytic Cycles, published on CD-ROM.Begins with explicit instructions from the authors, facilitating use of the HandbookDetails the associated catalytic cycle for each class of reactionsOffers a choice of references, allowing the reader to find the closest example for solving a given problem84 types of mechanism covered, plus over 2500 referencesPresents graphical abstracts for all reactions described, making it easy to search a type of reactionComb-bound for easy referenceFree demo disk included for the Database of Palladium ChemistryA versatile tool for chemists in the academic community, this handbook will be an invaluable tool in the laboratory
