"Asymmetric Synthesis of Natural Products," 2nd Edition introduces
students to this rapidly growing field of organic chemistry. The
initial chapters present the foundations of asymmetric synthesis,
including the theory and applications of individual asymmetric
reactions. This is followed by chapters on each of the major
individual classes of natural products; their structures,
biosynthesis and interrelationships as well as examples of
asymmetric syntheses and the practical value of these compounds.
Natural product classes covered include carbohydrates, amino acids,
peptides, proteins, nucleosides, nucleotides, nucleic acids,
polyketides, isoprenoids, shikamic acid derivatives and alkaloids.
For this second edition the text has been thoroughly updated and
expanded, and includes new discussions and examples covering atom
and redox economies, practical aspects and environmental awareness.
Organocatalysis has emerged completely in the last ten years, and
has been fully integrated into this new edition.
