Clearly structured, each entry begins with a concise introduction, including a mechanistic discussion of the reaction. Experimental procedures are brought together in a concluding chapter: preparative guidelines for newcomers, carefully selected working procedures with critical notes for bench chemists, rules of thumb and tips and tricks.
Peter I. Dalko studied chemistry at the Budapest Technical University (Hungary) and obtained his doctorate with Dr. S. D. Géro in Gif–sur–Yvette (France). After undertaking postdoctoral research with Sir Derek H. Barton at Texas A&M University (USA) and Prof. Yoshito Kishi at Harvard University he joined Prof. Janine Cossy′s research group at the ESPCI in Paris. His current main research interest is the development of novel asymmetric reactions.
