This volume provides, at postgraduate student level, an accessible introduction to stoichiometric asymmetric synthesis. The authors focus on stereoselective C-C bond formation in acyclic systems, with an emphasis on the use of chiral auxiliaries and reagents.

The book is extensively referenced and so provides a convenient point of entry to the research literature.
