Organic Synthesis: State of the Art 2003 - 2005
The first in a new series, this book provides chemists an effective, much-needed way to stay abreast of recent developments in organic synthesis. The 103 articles review the leading synthetic procedures developed from 2003 - 2005, discussing their significance and their applications. More than 100 reactions are covered, including Heterocycle Construction by Grubbs Metathesis, Enantioselective C-C Bond Construction, and Organic Reactions in Ionic Liquids.
