Homogeneous Isomerization, Amination and Silicon Compounds Reactions, a volume in the Advances in Homogeneous Catalysis series, is separated into three parts to provide comprehensive coverage of isomerization, amination and silicon compounds reactions with homogeneous catalysts. The first part presents isomerization of functionalized and non-functionalized alkenes. Homogeneous amination and hydroamination reactions are investigated the second, while the final part covers homogeneous reactions of silicon compounds. The comprehensive coverage of the subject means this volume will be particularly useful to help bridge the gap between chemists and engineer’s knowledge and use of homogeneous catalysis.

Neglected Zoonoses and Antimicrobial Resistance: Impact on One Health and Sustainable Development Goals provides a thorough examination of how neglected zoonoses and antimicrobial resistance together hinder the achievement of sustainable development goals declared by the United Nations in the pursuit of a disease-free world. Neglected zoonotic diseases, as defined by the World Health Organization, are diseases likely to impact the livelihoods of livestock keepers and those living in periurban communities in developing countries. This book examines how such zoonoses affect the health of vulnerable farming populations and reduce the production capacity of their livestock.Written by internationally recognized experts in the field of livestock and poultry zoonoses, this book provides the reader with a comprehensive description of modern sustainable development goals and defines neglected zoonotic diseases and their impacts on human physical, mental, social, and economic health. Subsequent chapters systematically describe the epidemiology, hosts and transmission, disease process, economic significance, and prevention and treatment protocols of key neglected zoonotic diseases, including echinococcosis, leishmaniasis, zoonotic tuberculosis, anthrax, brucellosis, leptospirosis, borreliosis, rickettsioses, and rabies. The book concludes with an assessment of the obstacles to achieving Sustainable Development Goals and possible mitigation strategies for veterinary researchers and policymakers alike.
