The Way of Synthesis
With its attractive layout highlighting key parts and tactics using a second color, this is a useful tool for organic chemists, lecturers and students in chemistry, as well as those working in the chemical industry.
"I think, as will many organic chemists, that the Hudlicky book will be the Bible of synthetic organic chemistry, the past, the present and the future. A hallmark publication." (Victor Snieckus)

Josephine Wiley Reed was born and raised in North Carolina, receiving her PhD under Professor David Kingston at Virginia Tech in 1988. She holds a BA in biology with chemistry minor from the Appalachian State University and a BA in English from the University of North Carolina in Greensboro. She has taught organic chemistry courses at Virginia Tech and has held the position of Senior Research Associate at Virginia Tech, University of Florida and Brock University since 1989. She has also served as the editorial assistant for the North American Editorial Office of J. Chem. Soc. Perkin Trans 1 and 2, as a member of the organizing committee for the Symposium on the Latest Trends in Organic Synthesis, and as a consultant to TDC Research, Inc, a custom synthesis company.
Provides a historical view of the evolution of synthesis
Looks at principles and issues impacting synthesis and design as well as principles and issues of methods
Sections on comparative design cover classics in terpenes and alkaloid synthesis, while a further section covers such miscellaneous syntheses as Maytansine, Palytoxin, Brevetoxin B and Indinavir
Presents not only synthetic ways to design organic compounds, it contains also a compilation of total synthesis with a COMPARATIVE view of multiple designs for the same target
- Key parts, strategies and tactics are highlighted by a second color
Concludes with a look at future perspectives and the personal recollections of chemists involved in the presented synthesis
- Statement of one reviewer: "WOW! It is an impressive tome. I also think there is as much between the lines as there is in the lines. Wonderful!"
"...The Way of Synthesis provides much information for its price." (Angewandte International Edition, December 2007)
