Symmetry: A Basis for Synthesis Design

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Sep 22, 1995 - Science - 561 pages
0 Reviews
Examines synthetic works pertaining to those directed towards symmetrical molecules and the usage of symmetrical starting materials and/or intermediates irrespective of the symmetry characteristics of the target compounds. Illustrates the simplification of syntheses exploiting symmetry rules and demonstrates the use of symmetrical precursors in the preparation of assymmetrical molecules.
