WILEY - Chemical Synthesis Using Highly Reactive Metals

Organization: WILEY
Publication Date: 1 December 2016
Page Count: 483

"Written by the creator of Rieke metals, valuable for chemical reaction methods and efficiency, this groundbreaking book addresses a significant aspect of organic and inorganic chemistry. The author discusses synthetic methods, preparation procedures, chemical reactions, and applications for highly reactive metals and organometallic reagents.

• Addresses a new generation of chemistry that goes beyond the standard use of metals and activation

• Provides step-by-step guidelines, chemical equations, and experimental descriptions for handling metals including zinc, magnesium, copper, indium, nickel, manganese, calcium, barium, iron, palladium, platinum, uranium, thorium, aluminum, cobalt, and chromium

• Uses a unique approach to highlight methods and techniques that make chemical synthesis and activation of Rieke metals more safe and efficient

• Discusses novel applications and special topics, such as highly reactive metals for novel organometallic reagents, semiconducting polymers, plastics electronics, photovoltaics, and the Reformatsky reagent"
