Catalysis is the acceleration of a chemical reaction by a catalyst, a substance that notably affects the rate of a chemical reaction without itself being consumed or altered. Since 1948, Advances in Catalysis has filled the gap between the papers that report on and the textbooks that teach in the diverse areas of catalysis research. The editors of and contributors to Advances in Catalysis are dedicated to recording progress in this area. Volume 49 reviews the directed evolution of enantioselective enzymes as catalysts for organic synthesis; dendrimers in catalysis and catalysis in ionic liquids; and the optimization of alkaline earth metal oxide and hydroxide catalysts for base-catalyzed reactions. Provides a comprehensive review of all aspects of catalytic research Contains in-depth, critical, state-of-the-art reports An indispensable source for researchers in academia and industry

This book presents both fundamental knowledge and latestachievements of this rapidly growing field in the last decade.It presents a complete and concise picture of the thestate-of-the-art in the field, encompassing the most activeinternational research groups in the world. Led bycontributions from leading global research groups, the bookdiscusses the functionalization of semiconductor surface. Dryorganic reactions in vacuum and wet organic chemistry in solutionare two major categories of strategies for functionalization thatwill be described. The growthof multilayer-molecular architectures on the formedorganic monolayers will be documented. The immobilization ofbiomolecules such as DNA on organic layers chemically attached tosemiconductor surfaces will be introduced. The patterning ofcomplex structures of organic layers and metallic nanoclusterstoward sensing techniques will be presented as well.

The second supplement to the three volume reference work Comprehensive Asymmetric Catalysis critically reviews new developments to the hottest topics in the field written by recognised experts. Seven chapters which are already in the major reference work have been supplemented and additionally a new chapter on Aminohydroxylation of Carbon-Carbon Double Bonds has been included. Thus, the state of the art in this area is now re-established. Together with the basic three volume book set and Supplement 1 it is not only the principal reference source for synthetic organic chemists, but also for all scientific researchers who use chiral compounds in their work (for example, in biochemical investigations and molecular medicine) as well as for pharmaceutical chemists and other industrial researchers who prepare chiral compounds.

This second volume of Chirality in Industry contains new casehistories from a wide range of contributors from industry or withstrong industrial connections. While it is intended that the newvolume will stand on its own, Volumes I and II taken togetherpresent an up-to-date and comprehensive picture of the technologiesrequired to produce optically active compounds on amulti-kilogramme to high tonnage scale as well as illustrating thebreadth of application of these technologies; the pharmaceuticals,agrochemicals, electronics, food, flavour and fragrance industriesare all represented. Chirality in Industry II * All new case histories * Unique industrial perspective on chiral technology * Emphasis on scale-up and process development * Comparison of biocatalysis, asymmetric synthesis and classicalresolution approaches The chiral infrastructure is now largely in place and there is noreason why large-scale production should not be possible for evenmoderately priced single enantiomer products. The successfulindustrial application of chiral chemistry depends on theintegration of a range of supporting technologies and there aremany examples in this volume of how widely the industrialpractitioner must cast the net to achieve practical productionmethods. As with Volume I, this new volume is of particularinterest to those professionally involved in the scale-up processesfor single enantiomers. However, students and researchers involvedin a more academic pursuit of optical activity will also benefitfrom some of the facets of large-scale thinking. An economicsolution is still most likely to be a simple, elegant solution.
