Book Description

June 17, 1999 0126516456 978-0126516456 1
The features of this book which will be of special interest to academic organic chemists are the introduction (Chapter 1), which presents a short course on the concepts and language of heterogeneous catalysis, covers organic reaction mechanisms of hydrogenation (Chapter 2), hydrogenolysis (Chapter 4), and oxidation (Chapter 6), a presents problems and solutions specific for running heterogeneous catalytic organic reactions in solution. These materials can supplement advanced chemistry courses.

Most synthetic organic chemists use a variety of "protecting groups" which they attach to functional groups (reactive groups of atoms) while some reaction is being conducted on another part of the molecule. These protecting groups prevent reactions of the functional groups during other reactions and are removed later by a heterogeneous catalytic method called hydrogenolysis. One unique feature of this book, not found in other books on catalysis, is an exhaustive chapter (Chapter 4) on hydrogenolysis, which is dredged from the recent synthetic literature published by modern organic chemists. Academic organic chemists should find this chapter extremely useful and may wish to adopt the book as a supplement for advanced organic chemistry courses designed for seniors and for graduate students. It will also be useful for professors and their research groups engaged in synthetic organic chemistry.

Many academic organic chemists are not aware of recent advances in heterogeneous enantioselective catalysis (Chapter 3) or in selective low temperature, liquid phase heterogeneous catalytic oxidations by hydrogen peroxide (Chapter 6). These specialty topics are timely and may be new to academic organic chemists and can be used to supplement their advanced courses.

Several features of this book will also be of special interest to industrial chemists who are unfamiliar with heterogeneous catalysis. Many good organic chemists are hire by industry. They synthesize a new compound using standard organic synthetic techniques but are informed by their supervisor that they must convert some of their synthetic steps into heterogeneous catalytic steps. They may not have been exposed to heterogeneous catalysis and have few places to turn. This book offers them a crash course in heterogeneous catalysis as well as many examples of reactions and conditions with which they can start their search.

Those industrial organic chemists already familiar with heterogeneous catalysis will find this book useful as a reference to many examples in the recent literature. They will find recent surface science discoveries correlated with heterogeneous catalysis or organic reactions and mechanistic suggestions designed to stimulate innovative nontraditional thinking about organic reactions on surfaces.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heterogeneous Hydrogenation Made Accesible April 7, 2000
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.
