Chiral molecules are molecules that come in left and right handed forms - they are mirror images of each other and behave differently in the body. This important book show chemists how to prepare chiral molecules to get the desired form. Presents an overview of the chiral auxiliaries, reagents and catalysts used in synthesis. Covers underlying principles.
