Continuing the proven and successful concept of the well-received textbook "Asymmetric Synthesis - The Essentials", this is a brief and timely update on the latest developments in asymmetric synthesis and selected applications in natural product synthesis, chemical industry and materials science. As such, it covers a broad range of topics in all important areas, including metal catalysis, organocatalysis, physical organic chemistry, and analytical chemistry.
Each contribution is similarly structured, while the short biographies of the experts are a useful tool for students selecting their PhD or postdoc topics and environments.
A must for anyone in academia and research working in this important field.
