Book Description

This book is a compilation of the recent applications of palladium catalysts in organic synthesis. The book demonstrates that it is a highly dynamic research field. This methodology has emerged as a powerful tool for the efficient and chemoselective synthesis of heterocyclic molecules. In the past few years, several strategies have been pointed out to pursue more efficient, sustainable, and environment friendly chemical processes. Among those strategies, catalysis and the design of new processes that avoid the use of toxic reagents have been the focus of intense research.

She entered into a specialized research career focused on the synthesis of 1,4-benzodiazepine based heterocyclic compounds (Organic Synthetic and Medicinal Chemistry). With 6 years of teaching experience, she has published 85 scientific research papers and review articles in the field of organic synthesis in reputed national and international journals. She has attended around 30 conferences/workshops/seminars, and has completed a two year Sikh Missionary course from Sikh Missionary College, Ludhiana, Punjab.


'The book “Palladium Assisted Synthesis of Heterocycles” presents a thorough compilation of modern palladium-catalysed synthetic methodologies aimed at accessing heterocycles of various nature and size. It is well-structured and written and covers literature extensively for the last two decades of research in the field. The book is highly recommended to all medicinal chemists who are interested in incorporating heterocycles into their lead molecules and are looking for a concise synthetic approach to making them. It is also recommended to all process chemists who are developing expedient and reliable methods aimed at accessing heterocyclic molecules.From my personal perspective, the book is clearly written, concise and easy to read.'
