About this book


Organolithium chemistry occupies a central position in the selective construction of C-C bonds in both simple and complex molecules. Paralleling the surge of interest in methods for asymmetric synthesis, the use of organolithiums in enantioselective synthesis has witnessed spectacular advances in a little over a decade. This volume is the first dedicated to a comprehensive coverage of this important area. It is designed to provide graduate students and researchers with a rich source of essential information on synthesising molecules in an enantioselective manner using organolithiums, and be an inspiration for future developments. Following an overview chapter summarising the key milestones, successive chapters, each written by leading experts in their field, critically survey all the major areas of progress.
