Description - New Frontiers in Asymmetric Catalysis by Koichi Mikami
This field of asymmetric catalysis has grown explosively. Catalytic asymmetric processes promoted by man-made chiral catalysts are becoming a staple of chemical technology. This book covers recent developments and findings in the research, including nonlinear phenomena, auto-catalysis, asymmetric activation, and de-activation of racemic catalysts, as well as asymmetric catalysis of carbon-carbon forming reactions such as "metathesis," a topic of rapidly developing interest.
