Description

In recent years, organo-fluorine chemistry has made a marked impacton the design and synthesis of a large variety of biologicallyactive molecules, such as steroids, carbohydrates, amines, aminoacids, peptides and other natural products. Naturally occurringamino acids play a pivotal role in living systems, and thereforesynthetic fluorine-containing amino acids have been of significantinterest to researchers working towards the understanding andmodification of physiological processes. Fluorine-containing AminoAcids:
* is the first volume devoted to the synthesis and properties offluorine-containing amino acids
* pays special attention to the preparation of enantiomericallypure acids (which are essential to the modern pharmaceuticalindustry)
* deals with a rapidly expanding field of research
* has been written by experienced researchers who are responsiblefor many developments in the field
* highlights the interdisciplinary nature of this topic
Fluorine-containing Amino Acids is the only dedicated reference inthis subject and will be essential for researchers in syntheticorganic, peptide, natural product, and medicinal chemistry andbiochemistry.
