Closing a gap in the literature, this comprehensive book presents such carbohydrate tools as chiral auxiliaries, reagents, complex ligands and organocatalysts, together with details of their preparation, as well as their successful application in stereoselective synthesis. It covers the synthesis of carbohydrate tools, and discusses examples for a broad range of different reactions compared to those obtained with the best conventional methods. An indispensable source for every organic chemist.
Mike Boysen is Junior Professor at the Leibniz University, Hannover, Germany. He obtained his Ph.D. degree under the guidance of Thisbe K. Lindhorst at th University Kiel. After a postdoctoral fellowship with Stefan Oscarson at G?teborg University he joined the faculty at Hannover University. His research interests include synthetic carbohydrate chemistry, monosaccharide transformation, enantioselective synthesis and development of novel chiral ligands for metal catalysis based on carbohydrates.
