Summary

Apply an Omnibus of Knowledge from Leaders in the Field

The unexpected diversity of topics presented at previous gatherings forced organizers of 2008’s 22nd Conference on Catalysis of Organic Reactions to expand its format to reflect the remarkable current degree of specialization in the field. Catalysis of Organic Reactions contains a compilation of papers presented at the event, and subsequently, few books will be able to match the breadth and depth of its content.

Featuring papers by respected scientists from academia, industry, and the governmental research-and-development sector, it covers various aspects of the production, sale, and use of catalysts for practical purposes. Articles concentrate on the general area of catalyzed synthesis, emphasizing the production of organic chemicals. With a focus on application rather than theory, the dominant theme is the traditionally practiced area of heterogeneous catalysis. Topics include:

  • Hydrogenation and hydrogenolysis
  • C-C coupling
  • Amination and oxidation (including the precious metal, supported base metal, and sponge metal, Raney process, and homogeneous catalyst types)
  • End uses of products, including industrial petrochemicals, fine chemicals, and pharma intermediates

Those working with applied catalysis will benefit greatly from this consolidation of insights and reviews of the latest developments in the field. Each of the papers presented were edited by ORCS members, drawn from both academia and industry, and peer-reviewed by experts in related fields of study.
