Volume 2 deals mainly with the addition reactions of delocalized carbanions (enolates) and their synthetic relatives (metalloenamines, enol ethers, allyl organometallics) with carbonyl compounds, imines and iminium ions. Major emphasis is placed on C-C bond-forming reactions such as the aldol and Mannich reactions. Acylation reactions are also included in this volume. Several topics that have not previously been reviewed are covered, including the use of enzymatic aldol reactions in synthesis and the Passerini-Ugi reactions.
