About the book
In the field of chemistry, catalysis occupies an imperative place in both academia and industry. Among the various types of catalysts, organocatalysts have steadily gained an indispensable role in synthetic chemistry. Owing to their less cost and toxicity, organocatalysts became the central part of green chemistry approaches for environment-friendly chemical synthesis. The optimum stability and tolerance to water and air make this class of catalysts, favorite and regardable among the scientific community which ultimately resulted in the development of various fundamental organic transformations in recent years. Nevertheless, as for any other promising catalysts, organocatalysts also have some shortcomings. The low efficiency (difficult product separation), high catalysts loading, and reusability (difficult catalyst recycling) are some of the shortcomings which propelled the researchers to design and develop traditional organocatalysts into magnetic separable, nanocomposites and immobilized polymer-supported organocatalysts.
In this context, this book aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the applicability of various designed organocatalysts for the synthesis of chemical, medicinal, and natural compounds. This book intends to provide a platform to bring organic and medicinal chemists together in one place to enlighten the vivacity of the organocatalysts in advanced synthetic chemistry.
