1. udgave. The reference work "Science of Synthesis: Catalytic Transformations via C-H Activation" covers the state of the art in C-H activation chemistry. Experts in the field present the best synthetic methods including typical or general experimental procedures. As such, this two volume set can serve as both a basis for the practical application of the techniques discussed, and as an educational resource to lay the foundations for future research. Volume 2 concerns the formation of C—C bonds by C—H activation of non-(het)arene substrates as well as C—H activation using special reagents or techniques. The formation of C—heteroatom bonds by predominantly arene C—H activation is also reviewed. For C—C bond formation, the material is subdivided into allylic, alkyl, and double C—H activation techniques, coupling using carbenes or radicals, and carbonylation or carboxylation processes.
