After an inordinately long induction period, organopalladium chemistry has finally been embraced by synthetic organic chemists. Currently, it is being utilized across the spectrum of organic synthesis, from applications to complex natural product syntheses to the synthesis of polymers. A substantial portion of organopalladium methodology has been developed in the context of heterocyclic chemistry and applications to heterocyclic syntheses abound.
In this new book, Jack Li and Gordon Gribble have compiled an impressive array of richly referenced examples of the use of palladium in heterocyclic chemistry. The book is organized by class of heterocycle (pyrroles, indoles, pyridines, etc.) and each chapter contains the syntheses of heterocyclic precursors as well as details of uses of palladium to both synthesize and functionalize these heterocyclic systems. This book will appeal to anybody involved in heterocyclic chemistry, and will provide an easy entry into the field for those unfamiliar with the area.
