Description

Topics in Stereochemistry, previously edited by ""the father of stereochemistry"" Ernest L. Eliel, is a longstanding, successful series covering the most important advances in the field. The much-anticipated Volume 26 on stereochemical aspects of organolithium compounds includes chapters on the following topics:
* Asymmetric Deprotonations Using Chiral Lithium Amide Bases
* Self-Regeneration of Stereocenters (SRS) via Stereolabile Axially Chiral Intermediates
* Overview of Carbanion Dynamics and Electrophilic Substitutions in Chiral Organolithium Compounds
* Oxiranyllithiums as Chiral Synthons for Asymmetric Synthesis
* Test on the Configurational Stability/Lability of Organolithium Compounds
* Mechanism and Stereochemical Features in Asymmetric Deprotonation Using RLi/(-)-Sparteine Bases
* Dynamic Resolutions of Chiral Organolithiums

Volume 26 of Topics in Stereochemistry marks the end of an era, while developing a bridge to the next generation. A new generation in publishing, parallel to a new generation in Stereochemistry mandated a new venue and modus operandi for Topics. Zurich, the home of Werner and Wislicenus, has a unique heritage in Stereochemistry. Fortunately, the Wiley family's publishing partnerships include Verlag Helvetica Chimica Acta, a house with a reputation for superior quality in publishing. Indeed, within the pages of its namesake periodical, Helvetica Chimica Acta, one finds many of the seminal research works of stereochemistry's giants. As such, a transfer of editorial operations to Zurich and a collaboration bringing Topics as a series closer to periodical status provides a growth platform for the future.
