This book covers a wide range of reactions which are of importance in the asymmetric synthesis of organic compounds. The principles of asymmetric additions to carbonyls, enolate alkylation, aldol reactions, additions to C-C double bonds, reduction and oxidation, rearrangements, andhydrolysis/ esterification reactions are covered, and selected examples used to illustrated the various topics. Numerous references to original literature should be of ues to organic chemists interested in the area of asymmetric synthesis.
Garry Procter is at University of Salford.
