Stoichiometric Asymmetric Synthesis. Postgraduate Chemistry Series
John Wiley and Sons Ltd, August 2000, Pages: 248
This volume provides, at postgraduate student level, an accessible introduction to stoichiometric asymmetric synthesis. The authors focus on stereoselective C-C bond formation in acyclic systems, with an emphasis on the use of chiral auxiliaries and reagents.
The book is extensively referenced and so provides a convenient point of entry to the research literature.
