Original Title: Science Of Synthesis Stereoselective Synthesis Vol 3In the three volumes of "Science of Synthesis: Stereoselective Synthesis" expert authors present the best and most reliable methods currently available for the preparation of chiral nonracemic compounds. These methods may be stoichiometric or catalytic, and the latter may include metal, organic, or enzyme catalysis. "Stereoselective Synthesis 3" covers stereoselective pericyclic reactions, cross coupling, and C-H and C-X activation, where the emphasis is on enantioselective reactions using asymmetric catalysts. Examples from the total synthesis of various natural and unnatural targets validate the utility of the various synthetic methods. Specific topics discussed include cycloaddition, cycloisomerization and sigmatropic rearrangement reactions, allylic and -carbonyl functionalization reactions, metal-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions, desymmetrization, fluorination, polymerization and sulfide oxidation reactions. // The content of this e-book was originally published in April 2011.
