Handbook of Reagents for Organic Synthesis, Chiral Reagents for Asymmetric Synthesis (0470856254) cover image


Derived from the renowned, Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis (EROS), the related editors have created a new handbook which focuses on chiral reagents used in asymmetric synthesis and is designed for the chemist at the bench. This new handbook follows the same format as the Encyclopedia, including an introduction and an alphabetical arrangement of the reagents.

As chiral reagents are the key for the successful asymmetric synthesis, choosing the right reagents is essential, in this handy reference the editors give details on how to prepare, store and use the reagents as well as providing key reactions to demonstrate where reagents have been successfully used.

  • Comprehensive information on 226 reagents
  • Covers 64 reagents which were not included in EROS
  • All information in one easy to use volume – at an affordable price 

All reagents included will be added to e-EROS – please visit the site where you can gain access to over 50,000 reactions and 3,800 of the most frequently consulted reagents.
