Late Transition Metal Polymerization Catalysis

Author: Bernhard Rieger
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9783527605262
Release Date: 2006-03-06
Genre: Technology & Engineering

At the start of the 1950s, Ziegler and Natta discovered that simple metallorganic catalysts are capable of transforming olefins into linear polymers with highly ordered structures. This pioneering discovery was recognized with a Nobel Prize in 1963. In the 80s and 90s, the development of molecular defined metallocenes led to a renaissance for non-polar polyolefin materials. Designer catalysts allowed a greater precision in defining properties of the material. The past 10 years have seen the discovery of new catalysts based on late transition metals, which allow the combination of polar monomers with non-polar olefins and thus lead to innovative materials. Here, the world's leading authors from industry and academia describe the latest developments in this fascinating field for the first time in such comprehensive detail. In so doing, they introduce readers systematically to the basic principles and show how these new catalysts can effectively be used for polymerization reactions. This makes the book an ideal and indispensable reference for specialists, advanced students, and scientists of various disciplines dealing with research into catalysts and materials science.

Hydrosilylation

Author: Bogdan Marciniec
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9781402081729
Release Date: 2008-11-09
Genre: Science

For fifty years, Hydrosilylation has been one of the most fundamental and elegant methods for the laboratory and industrial synthesis of organosilicon and silicon related compounds. Despite the intensive research and continued interest generated by organosilicon compounds, no comprehensive book incorporating its various aspects has been published this century. The aim of this book is to comprehensively review the advances of hydrosilylation processes since 1990. The survey of the literature published over the last two decades enables the authors to discuss the most recent aspects of hydrosilylation advances (catalytic and synthetic) and to elucidate the reaction mechanism for the given catalyst used and the reaction utilization. New catalytic pathways under optimum conditions necessary for efficient synthesis of organosilicon compounds are presented. This monograph shows the extensive development in the application of hydrosilylation in organic and asymmetric syntheses and in polymer and material science.
