Book Description

This comprehensive review of cinchona–based chiralilty inducers and their applications covers every topic, including ligands, immobilization and organocatalysis. Each chapter summarizes the scope and limitations of the new methods and technologies, while the final chapter contains carefully selected working procedures of cinchona alkaloid–promoted reactions organized according to reaction type.
Invaluable reading for anyone wanting to learn about the current state of this hot topic.

From the Back Cover This first comprehensive review of cinchona–based chiralilty transmitters and their applications covers all relevant topics, including ligands, organocatalysis and modern analytics. With contributions from academia and industry, each chapter summarizes the scope and limitations of the new methods and technologies, while the final chapter contains carefully selected representative Cinchona–promoted catalytic examples, organized by reaction types.

From the contents:

∗ An overview of chinchona alkaloids in chemistry
∗ Cinchona alkaloids and their derivatives as chirality inducers in metal–catalyzed asymmetric reactions
∗ Cinchona–based organocatalysts in enantioselective reactions
∗ Bifunctional cinchona–based organocatalysts
∗ Chiral phase–transfer catalysts derived from cinchona alkaloids
∗ Organic chemistry of cinchona alkaloids
∗ Resolution of racemates by Cinchona alkaloid and their derivatives
∗ Enantioselective analytics by Cinchona alkaloid and their derivatives

An indispensable handbook and “one–step” reference for those wishing to learn about the current state of this hot topic.
