Copper-based Catalysts

Copper is one of the ubiquitous and inexpensive metals. In classical methodology, a stoichiometric amount of copper species has been utilised for organic synthesis. However, the development of copper-catalysed reactions is most important from the viewpoint of sustainability and green chemistry. This chapter summarises valuable homogeneous copper-catalysed reactions such as crosscouplings, oxidation, fixation of carbon dioxide, and others.
