During the last few years, the impact of organosulfur chemistry, especially in the areas of stereocontrolled processes, has led to an explosion of interest in the field. This book is intended to provide in-depth coverage of topics of interest throughout the whole range of organic sulfur chemistry, including bio-organic, physical organic, and synthetic aspects.
This books covers such topics as: Synthetic transformations involving thiiranium ion intermediates Optically active (-ketosulfoxides and analogues in asymmetric synthesis Trends in the chemistry of 1,3-dithioacetals

@qu:This book is the first of a new series that plans to treat a broad range of topics in organosulfur chemistry, including bio-organic and physical organic aspects....In general, all five chapters provide thoughtful and judiciouslychosen material on their respective topics, rather than an exhaustive coverage. The book is well-written and clearly illustrated. @source:--JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY @qu:This book is the first of a new series that plans to treat a broad range of topics in organosulfur chemistry, including bio-organic and physical organic aspects....In general, all five chapters provide thoughtful and judiciously chosen material on their respective topics, rather than an exhaustive coverage.
