DESCRIPTION


Showcases the important role of organometallic chemistry in industrial applications and includes practical examples and case studies

This comprehensive book takes a practical approach to how organometallic chemistry is being used in industrial applications. It uniquely offers numerous, real-world examples and case studies that aid working R&D researchers as well as Ph.D. and postdoc students preparing to ace interviews in order to enter the workforce. Edited by two world-leading and established industrial chemists, the book covers flow chemistry (catalytic and non-catalytic organometallic chemistry), various cross-coupling reactions (C-C, C-N, and C-B) in classical batch chemistry, conjugate addition reactions, metathesis, and C-H arylation and achiral hydrogenation reactions.

Beginning with an overview of the many industrial milestones within the field over the years, Organometallic Chemistry in Industry: A Practical Approach provides chapters covering: the design, development, and execution of a continuous flow enabled API manufacturing route; continuous manufacturing as an enabling technology for low temperature organometallic chemistry; the development of a nickel-catalyzed enantioselective Mizoroki-Heck coupling; and the development of iron-catalyzed Kumada cross-coupling for the large scale production of Aliskiren intermediates. The book also examines aspects of homogeneous hydrogenation from industrial research; the latest industrial uses of olefin metathesis; and more.

-Includes rare industrial case studies difficult to find in current literature
-Helps readers successfully carry out their own reactions
-Covers topics like flow chemistry, cross-coupling reactions, and dehydrative decarbonylation
-Features a foreword by Nobel Laureate R. H. Grubbs
-A perfect resource for every R&D researcher in industry
-Useful for PhD students and postdocs: excellent preparation for a job interview

Organometallic Chemistry in Industry: A Practical Approach is an excellent resource for all chemists, including those working in the pharmaceutical industry and organometallics.
