Awaiting publication


Organic Syntheses Based on Named Reactions: A Practical Encyclopedic Guide to Over 800 Transformations, Fourth Edition is an indispensable reference companion for chemistry students and researchers. The book provides an overview of name reactions based on reaction types and products formed and presents schemes, procedures and references in a simple, one-page format that offers a brief, representative procedure for each name reaction. The book is illustrated with real synthetic examples from literature, with about 3,400 references to primary literature that direct users to additional information. Extensive indexes (name, reagent, reaction) and a very useful functional group transformation index help the reader fully navigate this extensive collection of important reactions.

With its comprehensive coverage, superb organization and quality of presentation, this new edition belongs on the shelf of every organic chemist.
