a comprehensive survey of the most widely used methods of obtaining pure enantiomers
a wealth of information on all aspects of the optical resolution of racemates by diastereomeric salt formation, including priniciples of resolvability, mechanisms, and kinetics, very valuable lists of commonly used resolving agents, and of optically active commercially produced agents
and summaries of 4000 resolutions by diastereomeric salt formation, which are invaluable in resolving an unknown racemate
well organized to facilitate fast access to the information and data
The handbook will be useful for researchers, engineers, and graduates
affordable for many research libraries, laboratories, and personal collections.
