Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis

Seminal text presenting detailed accounts of the most important catalytic asymmetric reactions known today

This book covers the preparation of enantiomerically pure or enriched chemical compounds by use of chiral catalyst molecules. While reviewing the most important catalytic methods for asymmetric organic synthesis, this book highlights the most important and recent developments in catalytic asymmetric synthesis. Edited by two well-qualified experts, sample topics covered in the work include:
* Metal catalysis, organocatalysis, photoredox catalysis, enzyme catalysis
* C-H bond functionalization reactions
* Carbon-carbon bond formation reactions, carbon-halogen bond formation reactions, hydrogenations, polymerizations, flow reactions
* Axially chiral compounds

Retaining the best of its predecessors but now thoroughly up to date with the important and recent developments in catalytic asymmetric synthesis, the 4th edition of Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis serves as an excellent desktop reference and text for researchers and students, from upper-level undergraduates all the way to experienced professionals in industry or academia.
