<b>The Chemical Transformations of C1 Compounds</b> <p><b> A comprehensive exploration of one-carbon molecule transformations</b> <p>The chemistry of one-carbon molecules has recently gained significant prominence as the world transitions away from a petroleum-based economy to a more sustainable one. In <i>The Chemical Transformations of C1 Compounds</i>, an accomplished team of chemists delivers an in-depth overview of recent developments in the field of single-carbon chemistry. The three-volume book covers all major C1 sources, including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane, methanol, formic acid, formaldehyde, carbenes, C1 halides, and organometallics. <p>The editors have included resources discussing the main reactions and transformations into feedstock chemicals of each of the major C1 compounds reviewed in dedicated chapters. Readers will discover cutting-edge material on organic transformations with MeNO<sub>2</sub>, DMF, DCM, methyl organometallic reagents, CCl<sub>4</sub>, CHCl<sub>3</sub>, and CHBr<sub>3</sub>, as well as recent achievements in cyanation reactions via cross-coupling. <p>The book also offers: <ul><li>Thorough introductions to chemical transformations of CH<sub>4</sub>, methods of CH<sub>4</sub> activation, chemical transformations of CH<sub>3</sub>OH and synthesis alkenes from CH<sub>3</sub>OH</li> <li>Comprehensive explorations of the carbonylation of MeOH, CH<sub>2</sub>O in organic synthesis, organic transformations of HCO<sub>2</sub>H, and hydrogen generation from HCO<sub>2</sub>H</li> <li>Practical discussions of the carbonylation of unsaturated bonds with heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysts, as well as the carbonylation of C(sp<sub>2</sub>)-X bonds and C(sp<sub>3</sub>)-X bonds</li> <li>In-depth examinations of carbonylative C-H bond activation and radical carbonylation</li></ul> <p>Perfect for organic and catalytic chemists, <i>The Chemical Transformations of C1 Compounds</i> is also an ideal resource for industrial chemists, chemical engineers, and practitioners at energy supply companies.
