Challenges in Synthetic Organic Chemistry by Teruaki Mukaiyama
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book gives a much-needed account of the work of one of Japan's most important synthetic organic chemists, Teruaki Mukaiyama, providing an insight into his approach to synthetic problems and the development of new synthetic methods. Early chapters record research into a wide range of reactions, including dehydration reactions, the use of organosulfur compounds, and oxidation-reduction condensations in peptide and nucleotide synthesis. The second part of the book looks at the development of novel synthetic reagents, and includes an account of Mukaiyama's important work on the applications of titanium compounds in organic synthesis. Synthetic control is covered in the final chapters. All those working in organic synthesis will find this book of interest. It makes accessible much work which has hitherto been available only in the Japanese literature, and provides a unique account of the work of one of the world's leading synthetic organic chemists.
