Useful Reactions in Modern Pheromone Synthesis

[ Vol. 1 , Issue. 1 ]


Kenji Mori and Takuya Tashiro   Pages 11 - 29 ( 19 )


Various aspects of pheromone synthesis are reviewed by analyzing examples published between 1990 and early 2003. Syntheses executed with new methodologies such as organoborane reactions, organotransition metal chemistry including olefin metathesis, asymmetric epoxidation, asymmetric dihydroxylation, other asymmetric chemical processes, and stereoselective biocatalysis are selected to illustrate the usefulness of new reactions in pheromone synthesis.
