Phase Transfer Catalysis: Principles and Techniques outlines the theory, mechanism, and kinetics of the phase transfer catalysis (PTC) process. This book surveys the principal reaction types that have employed the PTC, including the typical experimental procedures for preparing catalysts and conducting representative types of chemical reactions. This compilation discusses the transfer of anions from aqueous to organic phases, macrocyclic ethers as phase transfer catalysts, halide displacement reactions, and Darzen’s reaction with chloroacetonitrile. The dihalocarbene insertion reactions into C-H bonds, Wittig reaction with aqueous sodium hydroxide, and phase transfer catalyzed oxidation and reduction reactions are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the deuterium exchange of active hydrogens and thiolation with organic thiocyanates. This publication is beneficial to chemists and students studying the principles and techniques related to PTC.
