In this book the reader will find worked examples of a selection of Carbon-Carbon bond forming reactions including the asymmetric alkylation of aldehydes and ketones, the Michael and Pauson-Khand reactions, aldol protocols as well as hydroformylation and carboxylation. In addition to these well-established transformations, examples of relatively new methodologies are described, for example catalysts for olefin metathesis in organic synthesis are well represented. Furthermore in the light of the popularity of palladium-catalysed coupling reactions, some of the important Heck, Suzuki and Sonogashira catalysts are described in detail and their uses exemplified.
