Organic reactions & synthesis
Strategic Applications of Named Reactions in Organic Synthesis is a comprehensive book that can help both specialists and nonspecialists of organic chemistry.
This guidebook has a foreword by E J Corey and an introduction by K C Nicolaou. The authors have dedicated the fourth part of Strategic Applications of Named Reactions in Organic Synthesis to explaining how named reactions are represented through coloured schemes. This is followed by a list of abbreviations, which include chemical names along with their structures. The sixth section contains a list of 250 frequently-used organic reactions. Each one is presented in a two-page coloured layout and comes with various examples. The usage of these organic reactions in the synthesis of complex, natural and unnatural products is also covered. The authors have incorporated a list of named organic reactions in alphabetical order in the next portion. The eighth part is an appendix, which contains information about named reactions. Readers can learn about the discoveries, contemporary usage and more. This guide contains more than 10,000 references, including reviews, seminal papers and theoretical works. The last portion is an index which will help readers quickly find what they are looking for in the book.
Strategic Applications of Named Reactions in Organic Synthesis is used in research laboratories and academic institutions across the world. This book is recommended for researchers, undergraduate and graduate students, chemists and professionals who work in the field of organic chemistry. The first edition of Strategic Applications of Named Reactions in Organic Synthesis, published by Elsevier, is available in hardcover.
