Methods of Non-α-Amino Acid Synthesis, Second Edition by Michael Bryant Smith

By Michael Bryant Smith

Although much less universal than α-amino acids, non-α-amino acids—where the amino workforce isn't really at the carbon instantly adjoining to the carboxyl staff yet is connected to a different carbon within the chain (for instance, the β, γ, δ carbon)—are elements of biologically vital molecules, are major within the pharmaceutical undefined, and are beneficial beginning fabrics for plenty of components of natural chemistry. because the ebook of the 1st version of this booklet approximately twenty years in the past, artificial paintings dedicated to the education of non- α-amino acids has extended greatly.

Methods of Non-α-Amino Acid Synthesis, moment Edition has been broadly rewritten and reorganized, delivering an up to date assessment of thoughts and strategies for non-α-amino acid synthesis, rather these amino acids which are key artificial intermediates or very important compounds of their personal correct. It makes a speciality of acyclic amino acids of C3–C10, but in addition aminoalkanoic carboxylic acids, aminoalkenoic acids, and aminoalkynoic acids. the hot variation includes many up-to-date references and has a better emphasis at the organic value of non-α-amino acids. as well as an array of artificial equipment, the ebook bargains discussions on why non-α-amino acids are important.

The e-book covers man made tools that depend on substituent refunctionalization, the conversion of cyclic precursors to acyclic amino acids, conjugate addition reactions, and enolate anion reactions and condensation reactions that result in non-α-amino acids. It additionally examines reactions and methods that bring about solid diastereoselectivity and enantioselectivity in the course of synthesis. A bankruptcy dedicated to biologically vital amino acids contains separate sections on GABA, GABOB, carnitine, DAVA, statine, and different major amino acids in addition to a brand new part on peptides and proteins that include non-α-amino acids. the ultimate bankruptcy addresses aminocyclic and heterocyclic amino acids.
