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.

Key Features

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


Organic chemists in research and industry.
