Science of Synthesis: Biocatalysis in Organic Synthesis Vol. 2


Format: Paperback
ISBN: 9783131741714
Publication Date: March 2015

The three Science of Synthesis volumes on "Biocatalysis in Organic Synthesis"
present a broad contemporary overview on the state-of-the-art in enzymatic
methods for asymmetric synthesis suitable for academics and industrial
researchers working in the field of organic synthesis. The goal is to start a
new wave of enthusiasm for biocatalysis in the broader community and to give an
overview of the field. "Biocatalysis in Organic Synthesis" offers critical
reviews of organic transformations by experts, including experimental
procedures. The organization is based on the type of reaction performed under

Volume 2 covers reactions involving the formation of C-C bonds. Addition of
carbon nucleophiles at C-O and C-N double bonds are reviewed, as are methods for
the formation of C-C bonds at arenes and additions to C-C double bonds. Other
chapters present transamination and reductive amination reactions, reduction of
carbonyl compounds, and the uses of epoxides in
