In "Science of Synthesis: Stereoselective Synthesis" expert authors present the best and most reliable methods currently available for the preparation of nonra-cemic compounds. These methods may be stoichiometric or catalytic, and the latter may include metal, organic, or enzyme catalysis. The three volumes of Stereoselective Synthesis provide an invaluable resource to the practicing synthetic organic chemist. "Stereoselective Synthesis 2" covers stereoselective reactions of carbonyl and imino groups, two of the most integral functional groups employed in organic synthesis. Specific topics discussed include reduction, alkylation, alkenylation, and arylation of these groups, as well as asymmetric aldol, Mannich, and Morita-Bayliss-Hillman reactions.
