    SOS – Catalytic Reduction in Organic Synthesis


Catalytic Reduction in Organic Synthesis

Catalytic reductions are among the most used synthetic transformations, and the past 15 years or so have seen great progress in this field. This work covers the latest developments in catalytic hydrogenation/transfer hydrogenation methodology, as well as selective coverage of more well-established processes.

The two volumes include discussion of both heterogeneous and homogeneous catalytic systems, and enantioselective methodology is well represented. There is a focus on the use of metal nanoparticles, both in suspension as well as on solid supports. Furthermore, the advent of research on the conversion of renewable resources into fuels and chemicals has given a great impetus to the field, as deoxygenations are often the first step in the conversion of biomass and this can often be achieved using hydrogenation or hydrogenolysis reactions. The volumes are organized based on the type of functionality that is being reduced.
Volume 1 covers the hydrogenation of alkenes, arenes, hetarenes, alkynes, and allenes. In addition, there are chapters on the catalytic reduction of alcohols, hydrogenolysis of ethers, the reduction of carbonates and carbon dioxide, the reduction of peroxo compounds, reduction of sulfur compounds, and catalytic hydrodehalogenation reactions.

Volume 2 covers carbonyl group reductions, with contributions on the reduction of aldehydes, ketones, and carboxylic acids and derivatives. Volume 2 also includes a series of chapters on the catalytic reduction of nitrogen-containing functional groups such as imines (including the reductive amination of aldehydes and ketones), nitro and nitroso compounds, N-oxides, azides, and nitriles.
