Asymmetric oxidation is a potent method for the stereo-controlled synthesis of functional highly compounds. Asymmetric Oxidation Reactions: A Practical Approach contains protocols for all the major methods of asymmetric oxidation reactions: the C-H bond, epoxidation of olefins, epoxidationusing peroxides, dihydroxylation, aminohydroxyaltion, aziridination, hydroxylation of enolates and enols, Baeyer-Villiger oxidations, oxidations of sulfides, selenides, and other heteroatoms, and oxidation using biocatalysts. Each section is written by experts and as well as the protocols providesthe reader with the features of the individual reactions, optimal reaction conditions, experimental precautions, and sample results. This book is therefore an indispensable laboratory companion to any chemist performing asymmetric oxidations.
Tsutomu Katsuki is at Kyushu University.
