Palladium-Catalyzed Modification of Nucleosides, Nucleotides and Oligonucleotides describes the procedures and protocols related to the modification of nucleosides, nucleotides and oligonucleotides via Pd-mediated cross-coupling processes. The book highlights the growing area of nucleic acid modification and how Pd-mediated coupling reactions can assist this development. Users will find key synthetic protocols for these reactions in this latest volume in the Latest Trends in Palladium Chemistry series. As most of the research in the field of antiviral agents has centered on the use of modified nucleosides that have exhibited promising activity, this book provides an up-to-date reference for both professionals in industry and other interested parties.

    Palladium-catalyzed modification of nucleosides, nucleotides and oligonucleotides

    The book is a nice review of the use of palladium catalysts in Nucleoside and Nucleic Acids Chemistry. The review is concise and complete. The chapters are ordered by the type chemical reaction. Potential applications are well described. Schemes are clear although some chapters (e.g. Ch 1) contain a few figures difficuly to see due to the grey colour used.
