C–H, C–O, C–C, and C–Heteroatom bond forming processes by using metal–ligand approaches for the synthesis of organic compounds of

biological, pharmacological and organic nanotechnological utility are the key areas addressed in this book. Authored by a European team

of leaders in the field, it brings together innovative approaches for a variety of catalysis reactions and processes frequently applied in organic

synthesis into a handy reference work. It covers all major types of catalysis, including homogeneous, heterogeneous, and organocatalysis, as

well as mechanistic and computational studies. Special attention is paid to the improvements in efficiency and sustainability of important

catalytic processes, such as selective oxidations, hydrogenation, and cross–coupling reactions, and to their utilization in industry.

The result is a valuable resource for advanced researchers in both academia and industry, as well as graduate students in organic chemistry

aiming for chemo–, regio– or stereoselective synthesis of organic compounds by using novel catalytic systems.

Pher G. Andersson holds a chair at the Department of Biochemistry and Organic Chemistry at Uppsala University, Sweden. He received his Ph.D. in 1991 and became a lecturer at Uppsala University in 1994 and a Professor in 1997. Among his many awards are the Bjurzons award (1992), the Oscar award (1995), the Junior Individual Grant for outstanding young researchers (1997), and the Astra Zeneca Research

Award in Organic Chemistry (2004). He was Chairman of the management committee for the COST D24 program ′Sustainable Chemical Processes: Stereoselective Transition Metal–Catalyzed Reactions′ which ran from 2001–2006 and he was the Coordinator for the ′Excellent Nordic Chemistry Network′. Since 2011 he also holds a position as Honorary Research Professor at UKZN, South Africa. Pher Andersson

has authored more than 100 publications and edited the books ′Modern Reduction Methods′ (Wiley–VCH, 2008) together with his former co–worker Ian Munslow and ′ridium Catalysis′ (Springer, 2010). His research interests cover selective synthesis, asymmetric catalysis, and sustainable chemistry.
