About this book


This book focuses on direct nitrogenation strategies to incorporate one or more N-atoms into simple substrates especially hydrocarbons via C–H and/or C–C bond cleavage, which is a green and sustainable way to synthesize nitrogen-containing compounds. The book consists of seven chapters demonstrating interesting advances in the preparation of amines, amides, nitriles, carbamides, azides, and N-heterocyclic compounds and illustrating the mechanisms of these novel transformations. It offers an accessible introduction to nitrogenation reactions for chemists involved in N-compound synthesis and those interested in discovering new reagents and reactions.


Ning Jiao is a Professor of Chemistry at Peking University, China.

About the editors

Ning Jiao received his Ph.D. in 2004 (with Prof. Shengming Ma) from the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, CAS. He then spent two years as an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Manfred T. Reetz at the Max Planck Institute für Kohlenforschung. In 2007, he joined the faculty of Peking University as an associate professor, and was promoted to full professor in 2010. His current research focuses on: 1) the development of green and efficient synthetic methodologies through single electron transfer (SET) process; 2) aerobic oxidation, oxygenation, nitrogenation, and halogenation reactions; 3) first-row transition metal catalysis and the inert chemical bonds activation.
