“N-Heteroatom-substituted hydroxamic esters”

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009

Professor Glover has recently published an extensive book chapter on his group’s research at UNE. The work appears in the iconic series started by Patai on Chemistry of Functional groups and which appears in most university libraries around the world. The 84 page contribution entitled “N-Heteroatom-substituted hydroxamic esters” summarises much of the research carried out over 15 years on unusual anomeric amides, a class of previously unstudied compounds, the properties of which have been uncovered at UNE.
