PVP is a highly safe polymer used in a wide variety of applications in medicine, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and industrial production. This book covers the chemistry, properties, and applications of PVP, including chiral polymer synthesis and its application to asymmetric catalysis. It discusses the design and use of polymer-immobilized catalysts and their design and synthesis, as well as peptide-catalyzed and enantioselective synthesis, optically-active polymers, and continuous flow processes. It is suitable for introductory courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, as well as for professionals looking for a one-stop resource.
