Homogeneous catalysis is the success story of organometallic chemistry. Since the discovery of hydroformylation by O. Roelen in 1938, catalytic applications have paved the way of organometallic compounds in industry. Bulk and fine chemicals, and even natural products are being produced via homogeneous organometallic catalysis.
The enormous breadth of this topic in view of both basic research and industrial application is met in this three volume handbook edited jointly by W. A. Herrmann and B. Cornils. The list of contributors reads like a who-is-who in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. In this handbook, experts will find the current state-of-the-art in their field and advanced students will benefit from the concise treatment of important catalytic reactions and processes. With its balanced presentation of the truly interdisciplinary topic and its outstanding editor- and authorship, the 'Cornils/Herrmann' is beyond common standards. Now in its second, completely revised and enlarged edition!

Homogeneous catalysis is the success story of organometallic chemistry. Since the discovery of hydroformylation by O. Roelen in 1938, catalytic applications have paved the way of organometallic compounds in industry. Bulk and fine chemicals, and even natural products are being produced via homogeneous organometallic catalysis. The enormous breadth of this topic in view of both basic research and industrial application is met congenially in this handbook edited jointly by W. A. Herrmann (Technical University Munich) and B. Cornils (Hoechst AG, Frankfurt). The list of over 90 contributors reads like a who-is-who in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. In this handbook, experts will find the current state-of-the-art in their field and advanced students will benefit from the concise treatment of important catalytic reactions and processes. With its balanced presentation of the truly interdisciplinary topic and its outstanding editor- and authorship, the 'Cornils/Herrmann' is beyond common standards.

First Edition 1998
Product Details
  • Hardcover: 615 Seiten
  • Publisher: Wiley-VCH (January 1st, 1998)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 3527294783
  • ISBN-13: 978-3527294787

Homogeneously catalyzed reactions suffer from one big disadvantage: separation of the catalyst from the products is complicated (and expensive) and catalyst recycling is often sub-optimal. This book describes homogeneously catalyzed reations with
a)organometallic complexes as catalysts in
b)aqueous (and other) biphasic systems.

The advantage of this method: One can separate the products (organic phase) from the catalyst (aqueous phase) by simply decanting the mixture. This saves time, money and waste! No wonder that it took only ten years from the first discovery of this method to industrial implementation of a 100 000 t/year plant.

An international authorship contributed to this book and gave first-hand reports on their work. One focus is the hydroformylation process - the first industrial large scale aqueous biphasic catalytic processes.

Catalysis, declare the editors, occurs always and everywhere, is not a separate scientific discipline of limited scope, but rather a cross-linking science that embraces all chemistry and biology indeed even listeners to Mozart experience catalysis, they claim, though they do not include him in the encyclopedia. Some 165 contributors explain approximately 3,000 terms relating to catalysis in all the fields where it appears as a reference for scholars, teachers, chemists, biological scientists, physicists, and others within and beyond the academic realm. A sampling of topics turns up burst kinetics, covalent catalysis, horse liver alcohol dehydrogenase, and non-aqueous ionic liquids. Each term is translated into French and German. The cross-referencing is extensive, and most entries include bibliographic reference.
