The author has organized the main body of his text in seven chapters devoted to nucleophilic substitution and elimination, alkene and alkyne chemistry, nucleophilic additions to carbonyl groups, enolate chemistry, aromatic chemistry, rearrangements, and ligand coupling processes.
Peaks at m/z 74 and m/z 87 were intense because the stability was conferred from extended conjugation of free radical with the carbonyl cation and the resonance stability of cation in enolate system, respectively.
After a general introduction and glossary, they cover practical aspects of asymmetric synthesis; enolate azaenolate, and organolithium alkylations; 1,2-additions and 1,4-additions to C=X bonds; aldol and Micheal additions of allyls, enolates, and enolate equivalents; cycloadditions and rearrangements; reductions and hydroborations, and oxidations.
The enantioselection mechanism proposed in this case is based on the formation of a chiral enolate of indanone (5) by the association of three points with the catalyst.
2] has a significantly different chelate structure, based on [beta]-ketone enolate ions.
Both DTBPPS and DAPPS are being investigated in a number of coupling reactions and will be reported including Heck coupling and palladium-catalyzed enolate coupling with ary1 halides.
