About The Product

Edited by two of the experts in the field, the central aim is to show organic chemists working in process development that enantioselective catalysis is suitable for the large-scale production of enantioenriched intermediates. In so doing, it is equally a source of information and inspiration for academic research, and, with its contribution by Noble prizewinner W. S. Knowles, will also heighten the status of industrial catalyst specialists working in the exciting field of enantioselective catalysis.

Some 25 contributions from top industrial researchers around the world present case studies on the development of the widest possible range of large-scale enantioselective processes, featuring stereoselective production processes of fine-chemicals, agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. Clearly structured according to the nature of the task, this handbook adopts a problem-driven approach such that readers can easily find how colleagues have dealt with a similar situation.
