Name Reactions for Carbocyclic Ring Formations  (0470085061) cover image


This book continues the well-established and authoritative series on name reactions in organic chemistry by focusing on name reactions on ring formation.  Ring formating reactions have found widespread applicability in traditional organic synthesis, medicinal/pharmaceuticals, agricultural, fine chemicals, and of late, especially in polymer science.
