Photocatalysis in Organic Synthesis Edited by Burkhard König is Now Online!

>Photocatalysis in Organic Synthesis: Introduces the important basic concepts of photophysics and describes typical laboratory set-ups for photoredox catalysis, thus enabling instant and reliable application of these new synthetic tools. Key photocatalytic transformations are discussed in detail, including representative experimental procedures, followed by a collection of industrial case studies. Rather than aiming for a comprehensive coverage, solutions are presented for challenging transformations in synthesis that employ visible light and suitable dyes. To this end, the authors, a team of pioneers and leaders in the field, discuss both the practical and conceptual aspects of this rapidly growing area of synthetic chemistry. A primary objective is to present a collection of the most useful, practical, and reliable methods of photocatalysis to a wider audience.
