Deals with basic principles of asymmetric catalysis focusing on its synthetic significance. Covers homogeneous asymmetric hydrogenation, asymmetric catalysis via chiral metal complexes, heterogeneous catalysis and non-organometallic catalysis. The collection of a range of stereoselective reactions illustrate various strategies and methodologies as well as their general utility.
