Preparative Chemistry Using Supported Reagents explains a certain dimension in the methodology of organic reactions.

This book discusses the physical methods for study that characterizes surfaces and their adsorbates and chemical reactivity at interfaces. The polymer-supported reagents, shape-selectivity within zeolites, and graphite intercalates are also described. Other topics include the metal oxides and their physico-chemical properties in catalysis and synthesis; photochemistry of adsorbed molecules; and magnetic spin resonance methods and applications to oxide surfaces. The physico-chemical characterization of supported reagents; polymer-supported oxidations; and alumina and alumina-supported reagents are likewise deliberated. This text also covers the novel aluminophosphate-based molecular sieves, clay-activated isomerization reactions, anionic activation, and cationic reactions.

This publication is beneficial to chemists and researchers conducting work on supported reagents.
