Theoretical Aspects of Homogeneous Catalysis: Applications of Ab Initio Molecular Orbital Theory / Edition 1by Piet W.N.M. van Leeuwen
Pub. Date: 04/30/1995
Publisher: Springer Netherlands
This publication is the first to present the quantitative application of quantum chemistry to organometallic reactions. Great progress has been made in recent years in the calculation of transition states of organometallic conversions in both homo and heterogeneous catalysis. This volume, which contains seven contributions by leading scientists, deals with key reactions of homogeneous catalysis including oxidative addition, migratory insertions, 2+2 additions, the Wacker reaction, and epoxidation. The book provides experimental chemists with an up-to-date overview of the state of the art in this field, and will stimulate an adjustment of views previously based on semiempirical calculations.
For researchers and advanced graduate students whose work involves organometallics and catalysis.
