- We can order this
Organocatalyzed Reactions I and II presents a timely summary of organocatalysed reactions including: a) Enantioselective C-C bond formation processes e.g. Michael-addition, Mannich-reaction, Hydrocyanation (Strecker-reaction), aldol reaction, allylation, cycloadditions, aza-Diels-Alder reactions, benzoin condensation, Stetter reaction, conjugative Umpolung, asymmetric Friedel-Crafts reactions; b) Asymmetric enantioselective reduction processes e.g. Reductive amination of aldehydes or ketones, asymmetric transfer hydrogenation; c) Asymmetric enantioselective oxidation processes;
d) Asymmetric epoxidation, Bayer-Villiger oxidation; e) Enantioselective a-functionalization; f) A-alkylation of ketones, a-halogenation and a-oxidation of carbonyl compounds.

From the reviews:"Under Rainer Mahrwald's guidance, the authors have gathered together hundreds of reactions, documented a wide variety of catalysts, and provided clear descriptions and schemes to illustrate the underlying mechanisms. ... all of the chapters are crafted to inspire many new ideas and suggestions for the reader's own work. ... is well worthwhile for large research groups and libraries."
