Metalloporphyrins Catalyzed Oxidations / Edition 1

This volume presents a state-of-the-art overview of research in the field of metalloporphyrin catalysis, ranging from porphyrin synthesis to applications to reactivity, biological catalysis and theoretical and mechanistic aspects.
The book contains ten substantial contributions written by authorities in the field. The first presents a general overview which introduces all types of catalytic oxidations by metalloporphyrins. The contributions which follow deal with synthetic routes to metalloporphyrins; various applications of synthetic metalloporphyrins; the theoretical aspects of the electronic structure of oxometalloporphyrins and oxygen-transfer reaction mechanisms; the synthesis of chiral metalloporphyrins and their asymmetric catalytic oxidations; and biological oxidations catalyzed by heme enzymes. Each contribution constitutes a homogeneous treatment of a topic and can be read independently. Research activities in this interdisciplinary area of chemistry are of extreme importance in the development of chemical technologies for mild and selective oxidation of organics or the detoxification of pollutants. It is hoped that this volume will help to stimulate new ideas and approaches.
For researchers in academia, chemical and pharmaceutical industries whose work involves chemical and biological catalysis.
