The five other chapters in Volume 1 cover transition metal-catalyzed borylation of C-X and C-H bonds; metalloborylation reactions of unsaturated compounds; recent advances in the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction; rhodium- and palladium-catalyzed asymmetric conjugate additions of organoboronic acids; and recent advances in Chan-Lam coupling reactions.
We have evaluated some commonly used HPLC stationary phases to determine the best choice for maximizing selectivity for unsaturated compounds. We used analyses of steroids, a diverse class of pharmaceuticals that share a common fused hydrocarbon ring structure, and simple isocratic methods, to compare stationary phases.
