Building on the 2000 book Modern Amination Methods, also edited by Ricci for Wiley-VCH, this text focuses not only on the C-N bond forming methodologies, but also on the role played by the amino function in those processes most closely related to the life sciences. Nine contributions by 16 international academics and researchers provide chemists with information about applications, detailing complex syntheses using the amino group as templates and modern techniques focusing on the introduction of the amino group. Coverage includes simple molecules highly efficient amination; catalytic C-H amination using nitrenes; nitroalkenes as aminations tools; isocyanide-based multicomponent reactions as diverse amination tools; direct catalytic asymmetric Mannich reaction and surroundings; amino-based building blocks for the construction of biomolecules; aminated sugars, synthesis and biological activity; selective/N/- derivatization of aminoglycosides en route to new antibiotics and antivirals; and evolution of transition metal catalyzed amination reaction.
