Description - Iridium Complexes in Organic Synthesis by Luis A. Oro
Ranging from hydrogenation to hydroamination, cycloadditions and nanoparticles, this first handbook to comprehensively cover the topic of iridium in synthesis discusses the important advances in iridium-catalyzed reactions, namely the use of iridium complexes in enantioselective catalysis.
A must for organic, complex and catalytic chemists, as well as those working with/on organometallics.
