  • The Rental copy of this book is not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. You may receive a brand new copy, but typically, only the book itself.


Is it possible to have access to all stereoisomers if you begin your synthesis with only one single starting material?
This book shows ways and concepts how this can be achieved by using the right reagents, conditions or reaction sequences. Especially if the starting material is very cheap or readily available this approach has a very high value in academia and industry for example to build up a new compound library.
This unique textbook presents numerous examples of this so-called "directed selectivity" which are often hidden in the original literature.
The text is highly useful for every organic chemistry student.

Author Biography

Ekkehard Winterfeldt received a PhD in 1958 with a dissertation on the total synthesis of lupin alkaloids at the University of Braunschweig. In 1959 he changed to the Technical University Berlin as an Assistant Professor and started to work on his habilitation which delt with natural occuring thiophene compounds. The venia legendi was awarded in 1963, and in 1967 he was promoted to an Associate Professor. In 1969 he was offered chairs at the University of Marburg, Berlin and Hannover, and he joined the Organic Chemistry Department in Hannover 1970.
He is member of the Akademie der Wissenschaften in G?ttingen the Braunschweiger Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft and the Leopoldina Halle. In 1990 he received the Emil Fischer Award of the German Chemical Society and an Honorary Doktorate from the University of Li?ge. In 1993 he was awarded the Adolf Windaus Medal (University G?ttingen) and in 1995 the Richard Kuhn Medal of the GDCh. From 1995 to 1997 he served as the President of the German Chemical Society, and from 1995 to 2000 as a member of the Senat and the Decision Board of the DFG. In 1997 he was elected for the Academia Europeae and received the H. H. Inhoffen Medal in 1998. Since May 2000 he is Prof. Emeritus at the Organic Chemistry Department, University Hannover.
