Key Chiral Auxiliary Applications, Second Editionis a detailed compilation of chiral auxiliary applications organized by type of transformation. Continuing from the most important and relevant auxiliaries described in its predecessor, the three-volume setCompendium of Chiral Auxiliary Applications(2001), as well as advances in the field, the book provides a vital and timely resource for chemists in the field. Each reaction class includes a series of tables and graphical abstracts of real reactions from the literature and patents to enable easy review and comparison of results. This anticipated edition is based on a screening of nearly 40,000 auxiliary reaction applications, with details supplied for the more than 13,000 selected representative entries: synthetic route, reagents, yields, diastereomeric/enantiomeric excesses, and characterization data. Updated and streamlined with more than 60% new material,Key Chiral Auxiliary Applicationsprovides valuable guidance and reliable content for selecting the best auxiliary for a specific asymmetric synthetic transformation.

  • Provides a comprehensive compilation based on nearly 40,000 diverse applications of chiral auxiliaries for selecting the best synthetic route to optically pure compounds
  • Contains over 60% new material with 13,000+ auxiliary applications categorized by reaction type, with reaction details and chemical and optical yields in one unique resource
Greg Roos formal education comprised of a BSc (1971), BSc Honours (1972), and PhD in Organic Synthesis (1976) from the University of Cape Town. A postdoctoral fellowship with Richard Cookson at the University of Southampton was followed by a few years of pharmaceutical industrial experience. His fulltime academic career involved the Un...
