Description

In this first book to gather the information on this hot topic otherwise widely spread throughout the literature, experienced editors and top international authors cover everything the reader needs -- from the synthesis of chiral organosulfur compounds to applications and catalysis:
* Asymmetric synthesis of chiral sulfinates and sulfoxides
* Synthesis and use of chiral dithioacetal derivatives, ylids, chiral sulfoximines and sulfinamides
* Use of chiral sulfoxides as ligands in catalysis
* Asymmetric reactions of alpha-sulfenyl, alpha-sulfinyl and alpha-sulfonyl carbanions.
As a result, readers will be able to improve their own performance in asymmetric synthesis.

"This book is a considerable achievement by the authors and editors with respect to both scientific content and presentation. It defines the field as it now stands and will be of value to readers for many years to come. It is required reading for any researcher interested in organosulfur chemistry, as well as for the many organic chemists engaged in asymmetric synthesis in both academia and industry."
