Asymmetric Oxidation Reactions

Edited by Tsutomu Katsuki

The Practical Approach in Chemistry Series

This text contains protocols for all the major methods of asymmetric oxidation reactions: the C-H bond, epoxidation of olefins, expoxidation using peroxides, dihydroxylation, aminohydroxylation, aziridination, dyroxylation of enolates and enols, Baeyer-Villiger xidations, oxidations of sulfites, selenids, and other heteroatoms, and oxidation using biocatalysts. Each section is written by experts and the protocols provide the reader with the features of the individual reactions, optimal reaction conditions, experimental precautions, and sample results. An indispensable laboratory companion.
