Catalysis in Asymmetric Synthesis / Edition 1

Asymmetric synthesis has become a major aspect of modern organicchemistry. The importance of stereochemical purity inpharmaceutical products has been one driving force in the quest forimproved control over the stereochemical outcome of organicreactions. Asymmetric catalysis is an important aspect ofasymmetric synthesis, and one that has seen tremendous activityover the past decade. This book is planned from the point of viewof the synthetic organic chemist, i.e. by transformation ratherthan on the basis of the organometallic chemistry. The emphasis ison non-enzymatic methods of asymmetric catalysis, although keyreferences to enzyme-catalysed reactions have been incorporatedwhere appropriate.

The book is extensively referenced and therefore provides aconvenient point of entry to the primary literature.
