Non-covalent Interactions in Organocatalysis describes the nature and magnitude of non-covalent interactions in a pedagogical way to assist the reader in building knowledge of the foundations and methods in the field. As very recent examples of organocatalytic reactions rely on subtle control of the reactivity and selectivity by adjustment of non-covalent interactions, this book is a welcome source. In addition, as the last few years have seen the dramatic growth of halogen-interactions with manifold applications in organocatalysis, the authors' focus on the importance of organocatalytic transformations of these interactions is timely and informative.
- Provides a condensed presentation of non-covalent interactions from the field of organic chemistry
- Features the classic literature of organocatalysis in each chapter
- Covers the most recently introduced halogen-bond types of interactions
- Focuses on the importance of organocatalytic transformations of these interactions, with each type being illustrated by milestones
Vincent Barbier is currently a PhD Student at laboratory "Synthese et Réactivite"-UMR 8180-University Versailles-St Quentin. His topic covers Super-Nucleophiles for innovative organocatalysis. He has previous experience as an intern at Laboratoire Charles Friedel, UMR7223-CNRS, Chimie Paristech. His research covered Gold catalysis: Cycloisomerization of diynes and synthesis of new gold complexes. He received his dual degree between 2010-2013, from Paristech & University Pierre et Marie - Dual degree Master of Science degree in Chemical Sciences & Engineering, Organic and Organometallic Chemistry.
