From the Back Cover
Carbon dioxide is not only a gas found in our atmosphere; it can also be used as an important "C-1 building block" in synthetic chemistry or as a medium for organic reaction.
Filling the need for an up-to-date handbook, this ready reference closely investigates the use of CO2 for the synthesis of carboxylates, carbonates, carbamates, isocyanates, and polymeric materials, as well as a solvent, in electro- and photoelectro-chemistry, biomass enhanced production and much more besides.
From the contents:
* Pathways for CO2 Conversion in Nature
* Carbon Dioxide Co-Ordination Chemistry and Reactivity of Co-Ordinated CO2
* Main Group Elements- and Transition Metal-Promoted Carboxylation of Organic Substrates
* Synthesis of N-CO2 Bonds
* Synthesis of Molecular Carbonates
* Polycarbonates, Polythiocarbonates, and Polyurethanes
* CO2 Reduction
* Non-Thermal Plasma Approaches for CO2 Utilization
* Photochemical, Electrochemical and Photoelectrochemical Reduction of CO2
* Electrochemical Carboxylations
* Indirect Utilization of CO2
* Fixation of CO2 into Inorganic Carbonates
Edited by an internationally renowned and experienced researcher, this is a comprehensive source for every synthetic chemist in academia and industry.
