Description

Closing a gap in the literature, this comprehensive book presents the utility of carbohydrate derivatives as chiral auxiliaries, reagents, complex
ligands and organocatalysts, together with details of their preparation, as well as their successful application in stereoselective synthesis.

Divided into four parts:
* Carbohydrate Auxiliaries
* Carbohydrate Reagents
* Carbohydrate Ligands
* Carbohydrate Organocatalysts

It is an indispensable source for every organic chemist.
