Description

At the very latest, with the award of the 2001 Nobel Prize for work on asymmetric oxidation, there has been a need for a comprehensive book on such methods. Edited by J.-E. Bäckvall, one of the world's leaders in the field, this book fills that gap by covering the topic, from classical to green chemistry methods. He has put together a plethora of well-established authors from all over the world who cover every important aspect in high-quality contributions -- whether aerobic oxidation or transition metal-catalyzed epoxidation of alkenes.
By providing an overview of this huge topic, this book represents an unparalleled aid for any chemist working in the field.

Chapters include:

Recent Developments in the Osmium-Catalyzed Dihydroxylation of Olefins
Transition Metal-Catalyzed Epoxidation of Alkenes
Organocatalytic Oxidation - Ketone-Catalyzed Asymmetric Epoxidation of Olefins
