Pincer and Pincer-Type Complexes Applications in Organic Synthesis and Catalysis by Szabo and Wdtendt :: Transition metal catalysis has become one of the most important tools in organic synthesis, important reasons being the high selectivities and high levels of atom economy usually achieved in catalytic transformations. Pincer and pincer-like complexes is an important class of catalysts employed in organic synthesis. The main advantage of these species is the well-defined stoichiometry, which allows conscious catalyst design and fine-tuning of the reactivity and selectivity of the catalyst. Also, the tri-dentate pincer ligand gives the metal complexes an unusual thermal stability. These properties contribute to the improvement of the usual catalytic properties of the commonly used catalysts and sometimes this can give unique catalytic features, which cannot be presented without the pincer framework of the system.
The book aims to help synthetic chemists to choose and apply pincer- complex catalysts in organic transformations. It also points out the most important pincer architectures that can be used efficiently in selective synthesis. Furthermore, it discusses reactivity and mechanisms in the elementary steps of catalytic transformation, which increases our understanding thereby pointing toward completely new applications.
