Special Issue "Claisen Rearrangement"
A special issue of Molecules (ISSN 1420-3049).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2012).
Interests: carbohydrate chemistry; total synthesis of natural products
Exactly one century ago, the discovery of the Claisen rearrangement opened the way to many approaches (of what? Towards what?) for the organic chemist. Nice extensions address stereochemical aspects, allowing prediction of the relative final arrangements, the influence of solvents, temperature and catalysts on the reaction behavior. Chirality transfers have proven to be fascinating and several examples in the field of synthesis of biologically active compounds have also been considered.
This Special Issue on Claisen Rearrangement will offer an attractive forum to present the different aspects of this marvellous reaction. I highly encourage authors to submit papers for this Special Issue, within the scope of Molecules. I hope that the topics presented will cover the enormous potential and demonstrate its widespread usefulness.
