Since the last edition was published seven years ago, catalytic asymmetric synthesis has become crucial to chemistry and to the preparation of pharmaceutical, fine chemical, and agricultural agents. The revised
Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis includes six new chapters on topics like non-conventional media/conditions, organocatalysis, CH activation, and much more, while the book's remaining chapters have been fully updated. A new section on carbon-carbon bond forming reactions, authored by distinguished Nobel prizewinning scientists, has been added. This revision, with a helpful appendix, is an essential reference on catalytic asymmetric synthesis for both chemists and students alike.
