Featuring contributions respected leaders in the field, Nitrene and Nitrenium Ions is the first comprehensive book to explore the role of reactive intermediate nitrene and nitrenium ions in chemistry and biochemistry. Covering a broad range of topics, including ultrafast studies, computational studies, behavior in aqueous solution, electronic structures, and reactions with aromatic compounds, this valuable resource will empower graduate students and researchers to better understand and expand their synthetic utility.

Author Biography

DANIEL E. FALVEY, PhD, is Professor at the University of Maryland. His research focuses on reaction mechanisms and reactive intermediates, with an emphasis on the exploration of intermediates that play a role in biochemical processes. Dr. Falvey has been awarded the Merck Award and the Reynold C. Fuson Memorial Award in Chemistry. Acclaimed for his teaching abilities, he has received the Outstanding Teacher Award from the Center for Teaching Excellence.

ANNA D. GUDMUNDSDOTTIR, PhD, is Professor of Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati. Dr. Gudmundsdottir's studies photo-removeable protecting groups, reactive intermediates, and polymer modification. Her research team elucidated the reactivity of triplet alkyl and vinyl nitrenes in solution and solid state using transient spectroscopy and matrix isolation. Among her many honors, Dr. Gudmundsdottir is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award.
