Fieser and Fieser's Reagents for Organic Synthesis, Volume 17
From reviews of previous volumes: "Essential for chemistry collections at the university and research levels." --New York Public Library ".highly recommended.lots of succinct, practical information on recent developments.in a format that is easy to use. The reagents are taken up in alphabetical order (common usage names, not CAS indexing code names), sometimes several to a page, sometimes several pages to a reagent. One can expect to find how to make the reagent (in loose terms), or where it can be bought, what it is good for, and where to seek complete details.As with previous volumes, one can profit from just browsing, even if one does not feel a need to look up any particular subject. It is thus a secondary function of the book to help one keep abreast of the field, and it would be a rare chemist who would not learn something new and useful from a casual perusal of the pages." --Journal of the American Chemical Society Reagents for Organic Synthesis Volume 1 1967 (0-471-25875-X) 1,475 pp. Volume 2 1969 (0-471-25876-8) 538 pp. Volume 3 1972 (0-471-25879-2) 401 pp. Volume 4 1974 (0-471-25881-4) 660 pp. Volume 5 1975 (0-471-25882-2) 864 pp. Volume 6 1977 (0-471-25873-3) 765 pp. Volume 7 1979 (0-471-02918-1 ) 487 pp. Volume 8 1980 (0-471-04834-8) 602 pp. Volume 9 1981 (0-471-05631-6) 596 pp. Volume 10 1982 (0-471-86636-9) 528 pp. Volume 11 1984 (0-471-88628-9) 669 pp. Volume 12 1986 (0-471-83469-6) 643 pp. Volume 13 1988 (0-471-63007-1) 472 pp. Volume 14 1989 (0-471-50400-9) 386 pp. Volume 15 1990 (0-471-52113-2) 432 pp. Volume 16 1992 (0-471-52721-1) 435 pp.
