About this Book

This first book to focus on catalytic processes from the viewpoint of green chemistry presents every important aspect:

· Numerous catalytic reductions and oxidations methods
· Solid-acid and solid-base catalysis
· C-C bond formation reactions
· Biocatalysis
· Asymmetric catalysis
· Novel reaction media like e.g. ionic liquids, supercritical CO2
· Renewable raw materials

Written by Roger A. Sheldon -- without doubt one of the leaders in the field with much experience in academia and industry -- and his co-workers, the result is a unified whole, an indispensable source for every scientist looking to improve catalytic reactions, whether in the college or company lab.
