Professor Akira Suzuki received his Ph.D. degree (1959) from Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan, where he later became a professor in the Department of Applied Chemistry (1973-94). In 1963-65, Dr. Suzuki worked as a postdoctoral associate in Professor Herbert C. Brown's research group investigating the stereochemistry of the hydroboration reaction. He was a visiting professor at several universities, including the University of Wales in 1988 and Purdue University in 2001. After his retirement from Hokkaido University in 1994, Professor Suzuki became a professor of chemistry at Okayama University of Science and was later appointed Professor at Kurashiki University of Science and the Arts in 1995. He has received numerous awards, including: Testimonial from the Korean Chemical Society (1987), the Chemical Society of Japan Award (1989), the H. C. Brown Lecturer Award (Purdue University, 2000), the 2001 Distinguished Lecturer Award (Queen's University, Canada, and Pfizer), and was made an Honorary Member of the Argentine Organic Chemistry Society in 2001.


Professor Suzuki's contributions to organoborane chemistry involve the discovery and development of new synthetic methodologies using organoboron compounds. The formation of organic radicals from organoboranes in the presence of catalytic amounts of oxygen was first discovered in the course of cooperative work with Professor Brown's research group. Professor Suzuki was also instrumental in the utilization of organoboron compounds as carbanions in synthesis. Organoboranes are also useful as a source of carbocations under electrochemical conditions, although a limited number of examples have been reported. More recent work by Suzuki and coworkers revolves around palladium catalyzed cross-coupling reactions of various organoboron compounds with a number of organic electrophiles in the presence of bases. This reaction has become known as the Suzuki Coupling and is the focus of this book.

Handbook of Organopalladium Chemistry for Organic Synthesis
Ei-ichi Negishi, John Wiley & Sons, New York, NY, 2002, 1,392pp. Hardcover.

This handbook is the most comprehensive and authoritative reference available on organopalladium reagents and catalysts. The material is organized according to reaction type, rather than type of organopalladium compound.





Organoboranes for Syntheses
P.V. Ramachandran and H.C. Brown, Eds., Oxford University Press, New York, NY, 2001, 264pp. Hardcover.

This book examines the recent advances in the art of organic synthesis via organoboranes. The volume includes a wide range of topics in asymmetric synthesis, such as reduction, aldol reaction, allylboration, homologation, and cyclopropanation. Additional subjects include Suzuki coupling, amino acid synthesis, fluoro-organic synthesis, boron catalysts for stereoselective transformations, heterocyclic synthesis, and novel borohydride reagents.





Contemporary Boron Chemistry
