Series: Tetrahedron Organic Chemistry

The Tetrahedron Organic Chemistry series was established in 1983. The Series Editors are Professor Sir Jack Baldwin FRS (University of Oxford), Professor Robert M. Williams (Colorado State University) and Professor Jan-Erling Bäckvall (University of Stockholm). In the first instance, please submit any proposals for a new book for the series to chemistry@elsevier.com.

The Elsevier Tetrahedron Organic Chemistry Series is a topical series of monographs by world-renowned scientists in several fields of organic chemistry. The Tetrahedron Organic Chemistry Series has been very successful in providing some of the very best scholarly works in these topical areas that have proven to be of lasting quality as indispensable reference sources. These books have provided the practicing researcher, student and scholar with an invaluable source of comprehensive reviews in organic chemistry, predominantly in the areas of synthesis and structure determination, including:

* Reagents
* Reaction mechanisms
* Molecular Diversity
* Asymmetric Synthesis
* Multi-dimensional nmr
* Enzymatic Synthesis
* Organometallic Chemistry
* Biologically Important Molecules

Book Series: Synthesis of Optically Active Alpha-Amino Acids

Most recent volume


Volume 7. Synthesis of Optically Active Alpha-Amino Acids

Published: 13th February 2016 Editor: J E Baldwin Author: R. M. Williams
The purpose of this book is to review and critically evaluate the best new methods to synthesize alpha-amino acids in optically active form. There is so much new literature on amino acid synthesis that the experimentalist will undoubtedly have difficulty in selecting the most appropriate methodology for constructing the amino acid of immediate interest. This book is a guide for steering the scientist through the maze of existing reports on the subject and contains the most up-to-date critical reviews of methods of asymmetric synthesis of amino acids. In areas that are relatively new conceptually and less studied experimentally, an effort has been made to review the most salient works with an eye towards future development. Over 330 schemes and figures are presented with references for rapid visual retrieval of information. The book will be of great value to academic and industrial organic research chemists, especially those concerned with medicinal and agricultural chemistry, as well as to graduate and post graduate students, biochemists and biologists.
