The most complete resource in functional group chemistry Patai's Chemistry of Functional Groups is one of chemistry's landmark book series in organic chemistry. An indispensible resource for the organic chemist, this is the most comprehensive reference available in functional group chemistry. Founded in 1964 by the late Professor Saul Patai, the aim of Patai's Chemistry of Functional Groups is to cover all the aspects of the chemistry of an important functional group in each volume, with the emphasis not only on the functional group but on the whole molecule.
Provides a unique summary of important catalytic reactions in the presence of silicon A must-have for all synthetic chemists, this book summarizes all of the important developments in the application of organosilicon compounds in organic synthesis and catalysis. Edited by two world leaders in the field, it describes different approaches and covers a broad range of reactions, e.g. catalytic generation of silicon nucleophiles, Si-H Bond activation, C-H bond silylation, silicon-based cross-coupling reactions, and hydrosilylation in the presence of earth-abundant metals. In addition to the topics covered above, Organosilicon Chemistry: Novel Approaches and Reactions features chapters that look at Lewis base activation of silicon Lewis acids, silylenes as ligands in catalysis, and chiral silicon molecules. -The first book about this topic in decades, covering a broad range of reactions -Covers new approaches and novel catalyst systems that have been developed in recent years -Written by well-known, international experts in the areas of organometallic silicon chemistry and organosilicon cross-coupling reactions Organosilicon Chemistry: Novel Approaches and Reactions is an indispensable source of information for synthetic chemists in academia and industry, working in the field of organic synthesis, catalysis, and main-group chemistry.
Each book in The Chemistry of Functional Groups series covers an aspect of chemistry of one of the most important groups in organic chemistry. Emphasis is placed on the functional group treated and on the effects which it exerts on chemical and physical properties, primarily in the immediate vicinity of the group in question and also on the behaviour of the whole molecule.
Chemistry and Technology of Silicones retains the nature of a monograph despite its expanded scope, giving the reader in condensed form not only a wide-ranging but also a thorough review of this rapidly growing field. In contrast to some other monographs on organosilicon compounds that have appeared in the interim, the silicones occupy in this edition the central position, and the technological part of the work is entirely devoted to them. This book comprises 12 chapters, and begins with a general discussion of the chemistry and molecular structure of the silicones. The following chapters then discuss preparation of silanes with nonfunctional organic substituents; monomeric organosilicon compounds RnSiX4-n; and organosilanes with organofunctional groups. Other chapters cover preparation of polyorganosiloxanes; the polymeric organosiloxanes; other organosilicon polymers; production of technical silicone products from polyorganosiloxanes; properties of technical products; applications of technical silicone products in various branches of industry; esters of silicic acid; and analytical methods. This book will be of interest to practitioners in the fields of molecular chemistry.
