Editorial Reviews


"This is a book I would recommend research students involved in heterogeneous catalysis to read an early stage, but it's style means that it will be of value to a much broader audience, including anyone with an interest in catalysis."
--CHEMISTRY IN BRITAIN, Vol. 35, No. 12, December 1999

From the Back Cover

Many industrial organic chemists synthesize a new compound using standard organic synthetic techniques only to be informed by a supervisor that they must convert some of the synthetic steps into heterogeneous catalytic steps. Those who have not been exposed to heterogeneous catalysis have few places to turn. Heterogeneous Catalysis in Organic Chemistry provides both the novice organic chemist with a concise introduction to the state of the art and the experienced organic chemist with descriptions of recent surface science and materials science discoveries that can stimulate innovative, nontraditional thinking about organic reactions on surfaces.

Written for organic chemists in academia and in the fine and specialty chemicals industries, this book addresses the questions organic chemists ask about heterogeneous catalysis by first introducing and explaining the concepts and language of catalysis. After this "short course," subsequent chapters cover reactions frequently used in organic chemistry, specifically liquid-phase hydrogenation of unsaturated bonds, hydrogenolysis (removal) of protecting groups, and selective oxidations using hydrogen peroxide. A special chapter covers the rapidly moving field of heterogeneous enantioselective hydrogenations for producing pure enantiomers of chiral products such as pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. The emerging field of heterogenized homogeneous catalysts is also addressed.

Format: Hardcover
For the advanced organic chemistry researcher who is entering the wonderful world of heterogeneous catalysis in general - and heterogeneous hydrogenation in particular - there is no single resource such as this to guide him. Working in the field of heterogeneous hydrogenation myself, I had felt that a modern, up-to-date, readable text was long overdue. Heterogeneous Catalysis in Organic Chemistry has all of these attributes and much much more. It will help you o brave chemist to safely navigate the enormous and often useless primary literature and reach what you were looking for. Be that experimental details for a particular transformation, current developments in the scope of the field, understanding of the underlying theory. I strongly reccomend all organic synthesis research departments obtain a copy. It will be invaluable for the whole range of staff, from the first year inexperienced graduate student nervously exploring the field, to the research group leader who wants to update his knowledge and understanding, painlesly, accurately and quickly.
