In one handy volume this handbook summarizes the most common
synthetic methods for the separation of racemic mixtures, allowing
an easy comparison of the different strategies described in the
literature.Alongside classical methods, the authors also consider
kinetic resolutions, dynamic kinetic resolutions, divergent
reactions of a racemic mixture, and a number of "neglected" cases
not covered elsewhere, such as the use of circularly polarized
light, polymerizations, "ripening" processes, dynamic combinatorial
chemistry, and several thermodynamic processes. The result is a
thorough introduction to the field plus a long-needed, up-to-date
overview of the chemical, biological, and physical methods and
their applications. Newcomers to the field, students as well as
experienced synthetic chemists will benefit from the highly
didactic presentation: Every method is presented in detail, from
relatively simple separation problems to advanced complex
