Overview

Praise for the previous editions

"An excellent text . . . will no doubt provide the benchmark for comparative works for many years." —Journal of the American Chemical Society

"An excellent state-of-the-art compilation of catalytic asymmetric chemistry . . . should be included in any chemistry reference collection." —Choice

"This is a tremendous resource and an excellent read. I recommend immediate purchase." —Perkin Transactions

Since this important work was first published in 1993, the field of catalytic asymmetric synthesis has grown explosively, spawning effective new methods for obtaining enantiomerically pure compounds on a large scale and stimulating new applications in diverse fields—from medicine to materials science. Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis, Third Edition addresses these rapid changes through contributions from highly recognized world leaders in the field.

This seminal text presents detailed accounts of the most important catalytic asymmetric reactions known today, and discusses recent advances and essential information on the initial development of certain processes. An excellent working resource for academic researchers and industrial chemists alike, the Third Edition features:

  • Six entirely new chapters focusing on novel approaches to catalytic asymmetric synthesis including non-conventional media/conditions, organocatalysis, chiral Lewis and Bronsted acids, CH activation, carbon-heteroatom bond-forming reactions, and enzyme-catalyzed asymmetric synthesis
  • A new section focusing on the important new reaction, asymmetric metathesis, in carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions
  • Updated chapters on hydrogenation, carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions, hydrosilylations, carbonylations, oxidations, amplifications and autocatalysis, and polymerization reactions

Retaining the best of its predecessors but now thoroughly up to date, Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis, Third Edition serves as an excellent desktop reference and text for researchers and students from the upper-level undergraduates through experienced professionals in industry or academia.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a well-prepared monograph that offers practical entries to the current literature for students or practitioners seeking a foundation in a particular area of asymmetric catalysis to support proposals or projects. . . Thus, the book has broad appeal; it should be useful for chemists at all levels, for graduate students and academic instructors to senior scientists and principal investigators." (Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, 16 June 2011)

"This third edition of Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis remains at the forefront of literature resources, and should be added to all chemistry reference collections. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (Choice, 1July 2011)

"An excellent working resource for academic researchers and industrial chemists alike . . . retaining the best of its predecessors but now thoroughly up to date, Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis, Third Edition serves as an excellent desktop reference and text for researchers and students from the upper-level undergraduates through experienced professionals in industry or academia." (Organic Chemistry Portal, 1 May 2011)

"Overall, this book would be a useful addition to the library of a scientist engaged in catalysis in general and in asymmetric catalysis in particular. It is clearly a must-have for any comprehensive library.." (JACS, 2010)

This is a tremendous resource and an excellent read. I recommend immediate purchase - this may be the last time that catalytic asymmetric synthesis can be covered so comprehensively in one volume with contributions from so many pioneers of the field...
Booknews
This second edition of a 1993 text is the result of an explosion of knowledge in the field of catalytic asymmetric synthesis. This volume addresses these extensive changes through new or substantially revised articles, presenting detailed accounts of the most important catalytic asymmetric reactions known, including new chapters on asymmetric carbometallations, asymmetric amplification and autocatalysis, and extended coverage on asymmetric carbene reactions, asymmetric dihydroxylation and aminohydroxylation. Written for academic researchers and industrial chemists, the book retains essential information on the initial development of processes. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
