Amide Bond Activation
Concepts and Reactions
Amide Bond Activation
Comprehensive resource on the pivotal role of the amide bond in organic synthesis
This book provides the reader with insight into the advances that have taken place in the field of amide bond activation. It focuses on both the fundamental structural properties of the amide bond and the synthetic reactions mediated by transition-metals.
By discussing amide bond activation in terms of modern organic synthesis, the reader is provided with a thorough overview of the area and its crucial role in forging carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds. Sample topics discussed within the work include:
- Cross-coupling of amides
- Amide bond activation by twisting and nitrogen pyramidalization
- Electrophilic amide bond functionalization
- Transition metal-catalyzed radical reactions of amides
- Amide bond esterification, hydrolysis and transamidation
- Classical bridged lactams and anomeric amides
- Computational studies of amide C-N bond activation
- Cross-coupling of esters by C-O activation
The book is immensely valuable to synthetic chemists in academia and the pharmaceutical industry who wish to gain an in-depth understanding of the concept of amide bond activation.
About this Author
Michal Szostak is currently a Professor of Chemistry at Rutgers University, Newark, USA. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas (USA) with Prof. Jeffrey Aubé in 2009. After postdoctoral stints at Princeton University (USA) with Prof. David MacMillan and at the University of Manchester (UK) with Prof. David Procter, in 2014, he joined the faculty at Rutgers University. His research group is focused on the development of new synthetic methodology based on transition-metal-catalysis, amide bond activation, conformational preferences of amides, transition-metal-mediated free-radical chemistry, C-H activation, and application to the synthesis of biologically-active molecules.
