This book describes the essential aspects of enantioselective catalysis in a clear, logical fashion, with chapters organized by concept rather than by reaction type. Each concept in Fundamentals of Asymmetric Catalysis is supported by carefully selected examples of a wide range of catalysts, reactions and reaction mechanisms.
