Organic and biological chemistry forms a key major division of chemistry research, with continuous rapid progress in existing areas as well as development of new avenues of research. This book series encompasses cutting-edge research across the entire field, including impor-tant developments in both new and fundamental aspects of the discipline. It covers all aspects of organic and biological chemistry. The series is designed to be very wide in scope and provides a vehicle for the publication of edited review volumes, monographs, and “how to” manuals of experimental practice.
Topic Areas Include:
Advances in Microwave Chemistry
Modern NMR Techniques for Synthetic Chemistry
Concerted Organic and Bio-Organic Mechanisms

Many new drugs on the market are chiral compounds, that is, they can exist in two non-superimposable mirror-image forms. Asymmetric catalysis encompasses a large variety of processes for obtaining such compounds. The performance of the catalyst in those processes largely depends on the ligand that ...
