- "This book covers the most recent developments in asymmetric organocatalysis, focussing on those published since the beginning of 2008. The last decade has witnessed an explosive growth in the field of asymmetric organocatalysis with an impressive amount of new catalysts, novel methodologies, and applications in numerous reaction types, such as nucleophilic substitutions, addition reactions, as well as cycloadditions, oxidations, reductions, kinetic resolutions, and miscellaneous reactions." "This very diverse and intensely developing field is too wide to cover in a single review article. The timeliness of the book, together with the expected impact is excellent, since asymmetric organocatalysis is arguably the most intensively developed field in organic chemistry. The book is designed to meet the demands of a postgraduate textbook, containing case studies and Q&A sections, as well as a practical reference book filled with facts and data useful as a working tool for the practitioner." "Recent Developments in Asymmetric Organocatalysis is divided into ten sections, dealing successively with nucleophilic additions to electron-deficient C=C double bonds, nucleophilic additions to C=O double bonds, nucleophilic additions to C=N double bonds, nucleophilic additions to unsaturated nitrogen, nucleophilic substitutions at aliphatic carbon, cycloaddition reactions, oxidations, reductions, kinetic resolutions and desymmetrisations, and miscellaneous reactions." "The Series is intended to provide an accessible reference for postgraduates and industrialists working in the field of catalysis and its applications. Books will be produced either as monographs or reference handbooks. The Series will cover research developments and applications of catalysis, in both academia and industry."--BOOK JACKET.
