Stereochemical Aspects of Organolithium Compounds: Topics in Stereochemistry, Volume 26
This series deals with important issues in stereochemistry, which is the three-dimensional spatial orientation of molecules, also called the chirality (or handedness) of molecules. Topics in Stereochemistry, previously edited by "the father of stereochemistry" Ernest L. Eliel, is a longstanding, successful series covering the most important advances in the field. The much-anticipated Volume 26 on stereochemical aspects of organolithium compounds includes chapters on Asymmetric Deprotonations Using Chiral Lithium Amide Bases, Self-Regeneration of Stereocenters (SRS) via Stereolabile Axially Chiral Intermediates, and more.
Chapter 1 Asymmetric Deprotonations Using Chiral Lithium Amide Bases (Nigel S. Simpkins and Michael D. Weller).
Chapter 2 Self-Regeneration of Stereocenters (SRS) via Stereolabile Axially Chiral Intermediates: (Paul R. Carlier, Danny C. Hsu, and Stephanie Antolak Bryson).
Chapter 3 Overview of Carbanion Dynamics and Electrophilic Substitutions in Chiral Organolithium Compounds (Robert E. Gawley).
Chapter 4 Oxiranyllithiums as Chiral Synthons for Asymmetric
Synthesis (Vito Capriati, Saverio Florio, Antonio Salomone).
Robert E. Gawley (Volume
Editor) is Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at the University of Arkansas at
Fayetteville. He received his undergraduate degree (B.S.) from the Stetson
University in 1970 and his graduate degree (Ph.D.) from the Duke University in
1975. After his stay as a research associate at the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill, he joined the faculty at the University of Miami. His research
interests are in asymmetric synthesis using chiral organometallics, development
of new synthetic methods, development of new sensors for marine toxins and other
xenobiotics, as well as natural products isolation and structure elucidation. He
has received the Provost's Award for Scholarly Activity and the Distinguished
Alumnus Award. He is a Fogarty Senior International Fellow, Fellow of the Royal
Society of Chemistry, and Secretary of the chemistry section of the American
Association for the Advancement of Science.
