Catalytic Reduction in Organic Synthesis, Vol. 1 Edited by Hans de Vries Now Available!

>This volume includes the latest developments, as well as selective coverage of more well-established methods, in the field of catalytic reductions. Both heterogeneous and homogeneous catalytic systems are covered, and enantioselective methodology is well represented. Furthermore, research on the conversion of renewable resources into fuels and chemicals has given a great impetus to the field, as deoxygenations are often the first step in the conversion of biomass and this can often be achieved by hydrogenation or hydrogenolysis. This volume covers hydrogenation of alkenes, polyenes, arenes, hetarenes, alkynes, and allenes. Additional topics include alcohol reduction, ether hydrogenolysis, and the reduction of carbonates and carbon dioxide.
