Oxford University Press | 12 June 1997
Paperback | 248 pages
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, and hydrolysis/ 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.
