Copper catalysis: a constantly evolving field

Copper catalysis is a constantly evolving field of research. Over the past decade, copper catalysts have been used strategically in two-electron and single-electron reactions. This allowed to achieve otherwise unattainable transformations, with cross-coupling reactions as a prominent example. Likewise, copper photoredox catalysis and electrocatalysis are crucial for the generation of versatile reactive radical species under extremely mild conditions from readily available bench-stable starting materials.

This thematic issue invites contributions exploring various aspects of copper catalysis, including both homogeneous and heterogeneous catalytic systems. Topics of interest include novel copper-catalyzed organic transformations, asymmetric catalysis, green and sustainable copper catalysis, heterogeneous copper catalysis for organic transformations, and more.
