"Asymmetric Organocatalysis 1" from the Science of Synthesis series gives an authoritative, broad overview of the field, compiled by 36 experts, as well as a critical presentation of the best organocatalytic and related methodologies available today for practical asymmetric synthesis. It provides alternative, greener syntheses with simple and easily used catalysts helping avoid the use of expensive and/or toxic metals.
The reference work comprehensively covers all the catalysts and reactions within the activation modes Lewis base catalysis and Lewis acid catalysis. Typical or general experimental procedures as well as mechanistic, technical and theoretical aspects are included, allowing the reader to clearly see how simple, clean and efficient this chemistry is.
This volume is part of a 2-volume set:
