Contents Elemental sustainability for catalysis -- Alkali metal (Li, Na, K)-based catalysts -- Magnesium- and calcium-based catalysts -- Titanium-based materials as catalysts for nonasymmetric synthesis -- Homogeneous titanium-based catalysts for nonasymmetric transformations -- Titanium-based catalysts for polymer synthesis -- Titanium-baed catalysts for asymmetric transformations -- Zirconium-based catalysts -- Vanadium- and niobium-catalysed enantioselective reactions -- Chromium-based catalysts -- Sustainable catalysis by manganese compounds: from heterogeneous molecular compelxes to manganese-baed (nano)materials -- Iron oxides and simple iron salt-based catalysis -- Iron complex-based catalysts -- Nickel-based catalysts
Summary Catalysis is a fundamentally sustainable process which can be used to produce a wide range of chemicals and their intermediates. Focussing on those catalytic processes which offer the most sustainability, this two-part book explores recent developments in this field, as well as examining future challenges. Focusing on catalysis through non-endangered metals, chapters are dedicated to the most important sustainable metals in catalysis: titanium, iron and aluminium. Remaining chapters examine several other important metals. Green aspects of the various reactions are also discussed, such as atom economy and use of green solvents and other reaction conditions. Together with Sustainable Catalysis: Without Metals or Other Endangered Elements, these books examine the progress in sustainable catalysis in all areas of chemistry, and are an important reference for researchers working in catalysis and green chemistry
