“As editor, Shengming Ma has struck a good compromise in this respect, having limited himself to authors who present interesting new synthetic methods and strategies.” (Organic Chemistry Portal, May 2010)
Wiley-VCH is proud to publish the essential text for every organic chemist. The Handbook of Cyclization Reactions is the only reference source available on this very important field of research.
Most organic compounds are cyclic, so the development of new reactions for the efficient construction of cyclic structures is of increasing importance. The Handbook of Cyclization Reactions discusses the most recent advances, providing what has come to be essential knowledge for a broad range of professionals. This is a hot topic for organic chemists both in academia and in many industries.
Unique to the Handbook of Cyclization Reactions are sample experimental procedures offering the reader invaluable practical information, alongside the breadth of knowledge it presents. Chapters providing state-of-art presentation of the most synthetically attractive cyclization reactions are also included.
Written by internationally leading chemists in the field, the Handbook of Cyclization Reactions provides authoritative first-hand information. The Editor, Shengming Ma, is Director of the world leading SIOC institute in Shanghai.
The Handbook of Cyclization Reactions is essential reading for organic chemists, as well as for chemists working with organometallics, catalytic chemists, and chemists in a broad range of industries including pharmaceuticals, fragrances, agriculture, and fine chemicals.
