About this book

At long last, the complete spectrum of the aldol reaction is presented here in this two-volume handbook. Top authors guarantee contributions of the highest quality, beginning with fundamentals and then moving on to enolates and catalytic aldol reactions, including the Mukaiyama Reaction. Further sections are devoted to enzymatic aldol reactions in synthesis as well as such related reactions as the Henry, Ene and Aldol-Tishchenko reactions. The wealth of information contained here allows a comprehensive overview of this important topic in organic chemistry, removing the need for the hitherto time-consuming research among the widely dispersed literature. With a foreword by Professor D. A. Evans.

Biography

Born in 1950, Rainer Mahrwald studied chemistry at MLU Halle and subsequently joined the "Manfred von Ardenne" Research Institute in Dresden, where he led the synthetics group. He gained his doctorate under G. Wagner in Leipzig in 1979, and went on to the Institute of Organic Chemistry at the Academy of Science in Berlin, where he remained until 1990. Following a stay at the Philipps-University in Marburg, Dr. Mahrwald qualified as a lecturer at the Humboldt University Berlin, where he is now a private lecturer.

Media reviews

...a comprehensive overview of the entire spectrum of aldol reactions. (The Catalyst, April 2007) "...a most useful addition to any collection serving researchers and students in synthetic organic chemistry, or pharmacologists and others..." (E-STREAMS, September 2005) "This two-volume set provides much needed comprehensive coverage of modern aldol reactions, an area of tremendous current activity, interest, and importance." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, July 20, 2005) "This set will be a valuable addition to the library of researchers in the field and for graduate-level students." (CHOICE, June 2005) "...this book is indispensable for anyone in the business of stereoselective synthesis..." (Synthesis, January 2007)
