About this book

Activated Metals in Organic Synthesis discusses fundamental principles of the generation of activated, highly reactive metals, and their applications in organic synthesis. Following an introductory chapter on basic forms of metals the chapters in Part 1 are devoted to common strategies utilized for the preparation of active metals. These strategies include vaporization and subsequent co-condensation of metal atoms, in addition to depassivating methods employed commonly in laboratory syntheses. Chapters in Part 2 discuss relevant organic transformations in which metal activation plays a crucial role. Specific topics covered include metal-induced reductive methods; pinacolic, Reformatsky, and Barbier-type reactions; McMurry ketone-olefin coupling; and, the Bernet-Vasella reaction.Each chapter is followed by literature citations ranging from specific references to significant reviews. Many structural formulas are provided, making it easy to follow each synthesis. This book will be an important reference for students, organic chemists, and researchers in all areas of organometallic chemistry.


Metal Activation: Basic Forms of Metals. Metal Vapor Chemistry. Depassivating Methods. Metal-Mediated Reactions: Reductions. Reductive Carbonyl Coupling Reactions. Addition Reactions to Carbonyl Compounds. Cyclizations. The Bernet-Vasella Reaction. Index.
