    DescriptionThis volume, number 23 in the "Tetrahedron Organic Chemistry" series, presents organolithium chemistry from the perspective of a synthetic organic chemist, drawing from the synthetic literature to present a unified overview of how organolithiums can be used to make molecules. The development of methods for the regioselective synthesis of organolithiums has replaced their image of indiscriminate high reactivity with one of controllable and subtle selectivity. Organolithium chemistry has a central role in the selective construction of C-C bonds in both simple and complex molecules, and for example has arguably overtaken aromatic electrophilic substitution as the most powerful method for regioselective functionalisation of aromatic rings. The twin themes of reactivity and selectivity run through the book, which reviews the ways by which organolithiums may be formed and the ways in which they react. Topics include advances in directed metallation, reductive lithiation and organolithium cyclisation reactions, along with a discussion of organolithium stereochemistry and the role played by ligands such as (-)-sparteine.

Regioselective synthesis of organolithiums by deprotonation: general points; lithiation alpha to heteroatoms; ortholithiation; lateral lithiation; remote lithiation, and beta-lithiation of non-aromatic compounds; superbases; co-operation, competition and regioselectivity. Regioselective synthesis of organolithiums by X-Li exchange: halogen-lithium exchange; tin-lithium exchange; chalcogen-lithium exchange; phosphorus-lithium exchange. Regioselective synthesis of organolithiums by C-X reduction: reductive lithiation of alkyl and aryl halides; reductive lithiation of C-O bonds; reductive lithiation of C-N bonds; reductive lithiation of C-S bonds; reductive lithiation of C-C bonds and pi-bonds. Stereoselective and stereospecific synthesis of organolithiums: configurational stability of organolithiums; Stereospecific synthesis of organolithiums by X-Li exchange; diastereoselective deprotonation; enantioselective deprotonation. Stereospecific and stereoselective substitution reactions of organolithiums: stereospecific reactions of organolithium compounds; stereoselective substitution in the presence of chiral ligands.
