Acid Catalysis in Modern Organic Synthesis, 2 Volume Set by Hisashi Yamamoto

This two-volume set covers all new developments and, in addition, includes the hot concept of combined Bronsted and Lewis acid catalysis, developed by Hisashi Yamamoto himself. The excellent editorial team has put together an equally top team of expert authors, resulting in a true treasure trove of essential information -- making this a must for every chemist working in organic chemistry and catalysis, in academia as well as in industry.


Acid Catalysis in Modern Organic Synthesis is an excellent reference book that should be available in every well-equipped chemistry library. It will certainly be helpful for many scientists as a guide through the ever-growing jungle of acids catalysis. ( Angewandte Chemie International Edition , January 12, 2009)
