Asymmetric Synthesis, Volume 3: Stereodifferentiating Addition Reactions, Part B presents intensive investigations in leading academic and industrial laboratories on stereodifferentiating addition reactions.
This book is divided into eight chapters and begins with a comprehensive review of the formation of chiral metal enolates and their stereoselective alkylation reactions. These topics are followed by discussions on chiral Aldol addition reactions and the many variations of asymmetric synthesis that may be carried out using chiral oxazolines. A chapter describes the alkylation of chiral hydrazones, a process that yields chiral-substituted aldehydes and ketones. Other chapters explore a variety of cyclization processes that form carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds. The last chapters deal with the asymmetric cycloadditions and sigma-tropic rearrangements.
Synthetic chemists and researchers will find this book invaluable.
