The field of dual catalysis has developed rapidly over the last decade, and these volumes define its impact on organic synthesis. The most important, basic concepts of synergistic, dual catalytic cycles are introduced, providing newcomers to the field with reliable information on this new approach to facilitating the synthesis of organic molecules. Background information and reliable procedures for challenging transformations in synthesis are presented, applying the concept of cooperative dual catalysis as a means of increasing molecular complexity in the most efficient manner. The most useful, practical, and reliable methods for dual catalysis combining metal catalysts, organocatalysts, photocatalysts, and biocatalysts are presented.

The widespread use of organoboron compounds justifies the efforts devoted to their synthesis, as well as toward developing an understanding of their reactivity. The nature of the mono- or diboron species is of paramount importance in determining the reversible covalent binding properties of the boron atom with both nucleophiles and electrophiles. By wedding the rich chemical potential of organoboron compounds to the ubiquity of organic scaffolds, advanced borylation reactions have the potential to open unprecedented synthetic alternatives, and new knowledge in the field should encourage chemists to use organoboron compounds. In this volume, the main objective is to provide a collection of the most useful, practical, and reliable methods, reported mainly within the last decade, for boron activation and boron reactivity. The volume covers the main concepts of organoboron compounds and includes experimental procedures, enabling newcomers to the field the instant and reliable application of the new tools in synthesis. Rather than aiming for a comprehensive coverage, the most advanced solutions for challenging transformations are introduced. To this end, a team of pioneers and leaders in the field have been assembled who discuss both the practical and conceptual aspects of this rapidly growing field.

The Science of Synthesis Editorial Board, together with the volume editors and authors, is constantly reviewing the whole field of synthetic organic chemistry as presented in Science of Synthesis and evaluating significant developments in synthetic methodology. Several annual volumes updating content across all categories ensure that you always have access to state-of-the-art synthetic methodology.

The field of photocatalysis has developed rapidly over the last decade and it is time to clarify its impact on organic synthesis. This volume is an opportunity to provide the defining and current reference work for this field. A primary objective is to collect together the most useful, practical, and reliable methods for photocatalysis and to introduce them to a larger audience. The fundamental concepts of photophysics are introduduced and laboratory set-ups are described, enabling newcomers to the field to instantly apply these new tools in synthesis. Rather than aiming for comprehensive coverage, solutions for challenging transformations in synthesis applying visible light and suitable dyes are presented. A team of pioneers and leaders in the field has been assembled, who discuss both the practical and conceptual aspects of this rapidly growing field. Scope, limitations, and mechanism of the reactions are covered and key experimental procedures are included.

The field of N-heterocyclic carbenes, whether in transition-metal catalysis or organocatalysis, is rapidly evolving towards applications, but is also still very active on the catalyst development front. Significant advances have been made over the past two decades and the development of these reactions has dramatically improved the efficiency of organic synthesis. N-Heterocyclic carbene based catalysts are now widely applied in the area of synthesis of both natural products and therapeutic agents. Science of Synthesis: N-Heterocyclic Carbenes in Catalytic Organic Synthesis presents the most commonly used and significant metal- or non-metal-catalyzed reactions for modern organic synthesis. The basic principles and current state-of-the-art of the methods are covered. Scope, limitations, and mechanism of these reactions are discussed and key experimental procedures are included. Typical examples of target synthesis are often provided to show the utility and inspire further applications.
