The efficacy of isocyanide reactions in the synthesis of natural or naturallike products has resulted in a renaissance of isocyanide chemistry. Now isocyanides are widely used in different branches of organic, inorganic, coordination, combinatorial and medicinal chemistry.
This invaluable reference is the only book to cover the topic in such depth, presenting all aspects of synthetic isonitrile chemistry. The highly
experienced and internationally renowned editor has brought together an equally distinguished team of authors who cover multicomponent
reactions, isonitriles in total synthesis, isonitriles in polymer chemistry and much more.
Valentine G. Nenajdenko became full Professor of Organic Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry of Moscow State University. His scientific interests include organic synthesis, asymmetric catalysis, the chemistry of sulfur and fluorine containing compounds, heterocyclic chemistry, multicomponent reactions. He was the winner of the Academiae Europeae Award in 1997, the Russian President Award in 1996, the Prize for the best scientific work at the Department of Chemistry of Moscow State University in 2001 and 2007, the Shuvalov Award in 2001, the Russian President Award in 2004, Russian Science Support Foundation in 2005, Moscow State University Awards in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
