N-Heterocyclic Carbenes - Effective Tool.pdf
This comprehensive reference and handbook covers in depth everything about the use of N–heterocyclic carbene–complexes in organic synthesis. From the theoretical background to characterization, and from cross–coupling reactions to olefin metathesis. Edited by an excellent and experienced scientist, this is an essential tool for every synthetic chemist in academia and industry.
Steven P. Nolan was born in Canada. He received his B.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of West Florida and his Ph.D. from the University of Miami where he worked under the supervision of Professor Carl D. Hoff. After a postdoctoral stay with Professor Tobin J. Marks at Northwestern University, he joined the Department of Chemistry of the University of New Orleans in 1990. In 2006 he joined the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) as Group leader and ICREA Research Professor. In early 2009, he joined the School of Chemistry at the University of St Andrews where he is Professor and holds the Chair in Inorganic chemistry.
