About this book

Now including Supplement 1 

Comprehensive Asymmetric Catalysis comprehensively and critically reviews methods for the catalytic preparation of chiral organic compounds. This major reference set presents the state of the art in this area. The internationally acclaimed editors and the contributors, who are recognized experts in the field, guarantee the authoritative and timely coverage. This set is not only the principal reference source for synthetic organic chemists, but also for all scientific researchers who require chiral compounds in their work (for example in biochemical investigations and molecular medicine) as well as for pharmaceutical chemists, agricultural chemists and other industrial researchers who prepare chiral compounds. Since the publication of the first edition 1999 research rapidly went on. These results are summarised in the first supplement which is added to the three volume bookset.
