Aziridines and epoxides are among the most widely used intermediates in organic synthesis, acting as precursors to complex molecules due to the strains incorporated in their skeletons. Besides their importance as reactive intermediates, many biologically active compounds also contain these three-membered rings.Filling a gap in the literature, this clearly structured book presents the much needed information in a compact and concise way. The renowned editor has succeeded in gathering together excellent authors to cover synthesis, applications, and the biological aspects in equal depth.Divided roughly equally between aziridines and epoxides, the twelve chapters discuss:Synthesis of aziridinesNucleophilic ring-opening of aziridines and epoxidesOrganic synthesis with aziridine building blocksVinyl aziridines in organic synthesisDiastereoselective aziridination reagentsSynthetic aspects of aziridinomitocene chemistryBiosynthesis of biologically important aziridinesOrganic catalysis of epoxide and aziridine ring formationMetal-mediated synthesis of epoxidesAsymmetric epoxide ring opening chemistryEpoxides in complex molecule synthesisBiological activity of epoxide-containing moleculesA high-quality reference manual for academic and industrial chemists alike.
