From the Back Cover
Get to grips with chiral polymer synthesis and its application to asymmetric catalysis
Written and edited by leading experts from around the world, Polymeric Chiral Catalyst Design and Chiral Polymer Synthesis is the first book to bring together in a coherent and cohesive form the history and latest research on chiral polymers.
Because they can be easily separated from a reaction mixture and reused, repeatedly, polymer-immobilized chiral catalysts have received considerable attention in recent years, making the book a particularly timely contribution to the literature on the subject.
Covering polymer-immobilized catalysts, the design of polymer-immobilized asymmetric catalysts, the synthetic aspects of chiral polymers, and dendrimers, the book includes chapters on peptide-catalyzed and enantioselective synthesis,optically-active polymers, continuous flow processes, and much more.
With up-to-the-minute explanations of potential applications in academic and industry R&D, Polymeric Chiral Catalyst Design and Chiral Polymer Synthesis is an absolute must-have resource. Not only is it suitable for use as an introductory text for students, it also provides a much-needed one-stop handbook for professionals interested in the chemistry, properties, and applications of chiral polymers.
