Iridium complexes in organic synthesis.


Iridium complexes in organic synthesis.

Ed. by Luis A. Oro and Carmen Claver.



396 pages




Although still not widely used within the chemicals industry, the usefulness of iridium in organic chemical reactions is coming to be increasingly recognized. This volume, edited by Oro (inorganic chemistry, U. of Zaragoza, Spain) and Claver (inorganic chemistry, U. Rovia I Virgili, Spain), presents 15 papers demonstrating some of these applications, covering transformations such as hydrogenation, hydroamination, hydroboration, C--C bond formation, carbonylation, and cyloadditions, as well as recent catalytic system using iridium nanoparticles and the use of relevant ligands as carbenes and pincer ligands.
