It introduces the concept of dearomatization and describes recent progress in asymmetric reaction procedures with different catalyst systems, such as organocatalysts, transition metal catalysts, and enzymes. Chapters on dearomatizations of electron-deficient aromatic rings, dearomatization reactions via transition metal-catalyzed cross-couplings as well as dearomatization strategies in the synthesis of complex natural products are also included.
Written by pioneers in the field, this is a highly valuable source of information not only for professional synthetic chemists in academia and industry but also for all those are interested in asymmetric methodologies and organic synthesis in general.
