Enantioselective reactions are a rapidly increasing field of research in almost all areas of chemistry and pharmacology. With new restrictive legislation pending, these industries are being forced, more than ever, to produce enantiomerically pure products. This handbook shows how this can be achieved. The information in the handbook provides a tool for planning novel reactions and provides access to important industrial products. The division into one volume containing liquids for catalysts as well as references and one volume dealing with products makes the vast amount of information manageable for the scientist and the organized reference can save time and money otherwise spent on searching through the vast amount of primary literature available. The two volumes of data are arranged in tabular format and the handbook contains over 1500 citations, covering other relevant literature.
