The Catalytic Reaction Guide

The Catalytic Reaction Guide contains information on 106 reactions important in industrial chemical synthesis. After selecting the reaction of interest, the pointer within the sliding insert lines up with details of the recommended catalyst and reaction conditions. Comments about the reaction and suggestions for improvements are listed on the facing pages.

Details of hydrogenation, coupling, selective oxidation, dehydrogenation, hydroformylation, carbonylation, decarbonylation, hydrosilylation, and cyclopropanation reactions are given and suggestions for Johnson Matthey catalysts are made.
