From the outset it is clear that the
editor has done well in getting
experts in their respective fields to
make contributions to this book.
The various chapters do not
exhaustively cover the literature
relating to the particular carbonylation topic. Instead, they cover the
most recent advances with some
introduction to the area that relates to slightly older work. While
this approach threatens not necessarily to cover the ?best? of each
topic, since such developments
may fall outside the prime target years to be covered, the various contributors have been sensitive to this fact and have nicely
integrated such benchmark literature disclosures with the more
recent work, which is covered in detail. Accordingly, the reader
is, once done with a particular chapter and those relating to it,
relatively up to date not only with the recent work but also how
that work relates to outstanding previous advances.
This book covers topics from the aesthetic to the practical,
from those of interest mainly to the commodities sector to those
relating primarily to the fine chemicals and pharmaceutical sectors,
and from the fundamental to the innovative. Accordingly, many
workers in the field will benefit from the overviews contained in
the various chapters.
This book contains 13 discreet chapter contributions, each
one with a particular brief. There is consequently some overlap
in a few of the chapters, which was not attempted to be
dealt with editorially since each chapter is clearly intended to
form an independent contribution. A feature of the specific
approach of generating self-sufficient chapters is that those
interested in the hydroformylation reaction, for example, would
be pressed to read several chapters before they are fully up to
speed with the field of interest. This is because aspects of that
particular reaction are covered in Chapter 1 (Bite Angle Effects
of Diphosphines in Carbonylation Reactions, P. W. N. M. van
Leeuwen), Chapter 3 (Enantioselective Carbonylation Reactions,
C. Claver, C. Goddard, A. Ruiz, O. Pa?mies), Chapter 4 (Microwavepromoted Carbonylations, J. Wannenberg, M Larhed), Chapter
5 (Recent Advances in Two-phase Carbonylation, D. Selent),
Chapter 6 (Catalytic Carbonylations in Ionic Liquids, C. S. Consorti,
J. Dupont), Chapter 7 (Carbonylation of Alkenes and Dienes,
T. Ke?gl) and to some extent also in Chapter 12 (Homogeneous
Carbonylation Reactions in the Synthesis of Compounds of
Pharmaceutical Importance, R. Skoda-Fo?ldes). Naturally this may
give someone interested in such a reaction more reading than
initially anticipated, but of course more specialized texts are
available for such a person. However, it is enlightening to consume
the breadth of a particular topic while taking in ancillary areas of
endeavour and this adds value to the format of the book to hand.
Other chapters are more self-contained. Examples include
Chapter 2 (Reactivity of Pincer Complexes Toward Carbon
Monoxide, D. Morales-Morales), Chapter 8 (Carbonylation of
Diazoalkanes, N. Ungva?ri, F. Ungva?ry), Chapter 9 (Carbonylation
of Enolizable Ketones (Enol Triflates), A. Arcadi), Chapter 10
(Recent Developments in Alkyne Carbonylation, S. Doherty,
J. G. Knight, C. H. Smith), Chapter 11 (Carbonylation of Allenes,
A. Nomoto, A. Ogawa) and Chapter 13 (Palladium-assited Synthesis
of Heterocycles via Carbonylation Reactions, E. Rossi). Of course,
the chapters mentioned in the paragraph above also represent
self-contained contributions with specific focus areas.
The target audience of Modern Carbonylation Methods would
include postgraduate students, academics and industry practitioners who may be interested in rapidly surveying one or more
of the fields covered in this book. Equally, it would be of interest
to specialists who wish to have ready access to a good review of
a particular topic with relevant literature references. This book is
highly recommended.
