Like its predecessor, Organic Synthesis Highlights II surveys recent accomplishments and current trends in synthetic organic chemistry. Part I describes new methods and reagents including asymmetric carbon-carbon bond formation with metallocenes and with enzymes, via temporary silicon connections, and by means of carbohydrate complexes. Part II describes landmarks in the synthesis of natural products and surveys synthetic strategies to different classes of natural products. The forty essays in this volume bear witness to the creativity and talent which have led to the recent advances in the field. Both advanced students and researchers active in the field will welcome this as a source of ideas and inspiration....
