Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

Catalysis plays a pivotal role in providing fuels, commodity and fine chemicals, and pharmaceuticals, as well as providing the means for strengthening environmental safeguards all over the world. More than 60% of all chemical products and 90% of chemical processes are based on catalysis. This chapter focuses on homogeneous organocatalysis.
