Description - Supramolecular Catalysis by P. W. N. M. van Leeuwen

In the past few years, supramolecular chemistry has led to new approaches in homogeneous catalysis. While host-guest chemistry had already found applications in catalysis as a result of the pioneering work carried out by Professor Ronald Breslow and Nobel prizewinner Professor Jean-Marie Lehn that began some 40 years ago, the construction of catalysts by supramolecular forces has only recently become a powerful tool. This development paves the way for large numbers of new potential catalysts that can be varied in an expedient way by changing the constituting building blocks. Written by some of the leading contributors in the field, this book is intended for both industrial and academic chemists with an interest in this area of catalysis. With its discussion of topics from ligand libraries to chirality-directed self-assembly, this is a must-have for chemists with organic, catalytic and polymer backgrounds, as well as those employing such compounds in industrial processes.
