Inside Cover: Stereocontrolled Synthesis of Carbon Chains Bearing Contiguous Methyl Groups by Iterative Boronic Ester Homologations: Application to the Total Synthesis of (+)-Faranal (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 34/2009)
In a new synthetic strategy successive groups are added to a boronic ester in a process akin to a molecular assembly line. V. K. Aggarwal and co-workers demonstrate this homologation concept in the stereocontrolled synthesis of (+)-faranal in their Communication on page 6317 ff.
