ISBN: 978-3-527-62042-5 September 2008 376 Pages




Like its three successful predecessors, 'Organic Synthesis Highlights IV' allows an exciting yet brief survey of modern synthetic methods. More than 40 articles - short, precise and topical - give an overview of the most recent developments and trends in the field.

Readers will learn about the key synthetic strategies, new effective methods in enantioselective catalysis, transition metal catalyzed reactions and stereoselective synthesis and applications for the synthesis of natural and non-natural products that are important for their daily work. Much emphasis is placed on referencing in order to make the primary literature easily accessible.

Prof. H.-G. Schmalz carefully selected the contributions with a view to creating an up-to-date and critical survey of the current state of the art in organic synthesis
New Methods in Stereoselective Synthesis
Transition Metal/Organometallic Methods
Enantioselective Catalysis
Total Synthesis of Natural Products
Synthesis of Non-Natural Compounds and Materials
Solid-Phase Synthesis and Combinatorial Methods
"It should service as a useful source of material for advanced courses or research group meetings, as well as the organic chemist's equivalent of a coffee-table book, to be dipped into at leisure." (Organic Synthesis Highlights Perkin Transactions, No.9, 2001)
