In this veritable "Who′s who" of asymmetric catalysis, each chapter begins with an introductory preface by one of the expert international contributors in the field, who then goes on to present current research highlights.
From the contents:
Auxiliary–mediated Asymmetric Synthesis
Asymmetric Natural Product Synthesis
Asymmetric Synthesis in Industry
The result is a summary of the key concepts for natural product, pharmaceutical and agrochemical synthesis as well as biocatalysis, providing a unique overview of recent developments and achievements. A must for organic and catalytic chemists, chemists working with/on organometallics, and in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
