Many chemical products, especially bioactive molecules, are asymmetric –– requiring specially designed corresponding catalysts for efficient synthesis. These compounds are needed in the chemical industry, especially in pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. The last few years have seen enormous progress in biocatalytic, organocatalytic and organometallic catalysis, making the synthesis more efficient, saving both time and money, while opening up possibilities for better processes.

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 Catalysis

Bio–Inspired Catalysis

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.
