Book Description
This unique reference–the only book of its kind to cover the entire breadth of the subject–provides an in-depth overview of the chemistry of metalloporphyrins as oxidation catalysts in chemical and biological systems. Discusses practical techniques for the synthesis of metalloporphyrins and introduces useful methods of immobilization to improve their synthetic utility! Furnishing detailed discussions of underlying mechanistic features, Metalloporphyrins in Catalytic Oxidations reviews the history of metalloporphyrin chemistry, explains the mechanistic and theoretical aspects of chemistry involving high-valent oxometalloporphyrin complexes, examines the chemistry of model metalloporphyrin systems related to cytochrome P450 and ligninase, describes the intricate mechanisms of hemoprotein-mediated oxidations involved in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins, elucidates asymmetric oxidations catalyzed by chiral metalloporphyrins, addresses metalloporphyrin-catalyzed autoxidations of hydrocarbons using dioxygen as the stoichiometric oxidant, illustrates metalloporphyrin-catalyzed oxidations of light alkanes with dioxygen utilizing nonclassical pathways and without the need for a sacrificial reductant, and more!
