Isocyanide chemistry; applications in synthesis and material science.


Isocyanide chemistry; applications in synthesis and material science.

Ed. by Valentine Nenajdenko.



605 pages




Isocyanide, or isonitrile, chemistry attracted much attention at the end of the 20th century when the stable carbene began being used for diversity-oriented synthesis, high throughput screening, and drug discovery. Here chemists from around the world offer a broad reference to the field today. The topics include chiral non-racemic isocyanides, Ugi and Passerine reactions with carboxylic acid surrogates, multiple multi-component reactions with isocyanides, the synthesis of pyrroles and their derivatives from isocyanides, and carbene complexes derived from metal-bound isocyanides.
