Transition Metal Catalyzed Furans Synthesis provides an overview of Furans, describing properties of these heterocycle compounds and covering traditional synthetic procedures for them. This book then explores catalyzed procedures for Furans synthesis in greater detail and depth then is currently available in published Reviews. Finally, this useful short work discusses natural products and bio-active compounds containing Furans, information of particular interest for their applications to medicinal and pharmaceutical chemistry. The short series Transition Metal Catalyzed Heterocycles Synthesis Series, authored by Xiao-Feng Wu, summarizes recent achievements on heterocycles synthesis with transition metal as the catalysts, with each volume dedicated to one heterocycle compound. Brief, focused review of this active research area, Furans synthesis via transition metal catalysis Useful coverage of furans properties and procedures, as well as relevant Furan-containing natural products First volume in short work series, "Transition Metal-Catalyzed Heterocycles Synthesis"
