With its list of contributors reading like a who's who, this is the ultimate standard reference on phosphorus in catalysis. Clearly divided into substance classes and spanning three volumes, it provides readers with an excellent introduction to the multitude of applications, backed by examples of optimal solutions. A definite must-have for all chemists working in synthetic chemistry, ranging from natural product synthesis to the production of pharmaceuticals.
Born 1954 Professor Borner finished his thesis in 1984. After several years of postdoctoral studies and industrial experience he moved to Rostock. Now, Professor Borner is head of department for asymmetric catalysis in Rostock and published over 140 scientific papers, reviews, book chapters and patents. He was awarded the departmental price for organic chemistry of the AdW, The Otto-Rohm price and the Descartes price of the European Union.
