"The field of asymmetric catalysis plays an increasingly large role in chemical synthesis as the demand for single-enantiomer starting materials, intermediates, and products rises. This book describes the essential aspects of enantioselective catalysis in a clear, logical fashion, with chapters organized by concept rather than by reaction type. Each concept is supported by carefully selected examples to give the reader broad exposure to a wide range of catalysts, reactions, and reaction mechanisms." "This book is designed to introduce advanced undergraduate or graduate chemistry students to asymmetric catalysis. It can be used as the primary text in a course on this topic, or as a reference by researchers who wish to increase their understanding. It is also intended for synthetic chemists who wish to increase their likelihood for success when faced with the prospect of using asymmetric catalysts."--BOOK JACKET.
