Description

Presents the principles, techniques, and reactions of practical synthetic organic chemistry

This book offers a hands-on guide to practical synthetic organic chemistry for practicing chemists and those studying the subject. Focusing on the most reliable and useful reactions, it provides the information necessary for a chemist to strategically plan a synthesis, as well as repeat the procedures in the laboratory. The new edition also adds content on recent advances in CH activation, photoredox and electrochemistry, continuous chemistry, and application of biocatalysis in synthesis.

In Practical Synthetic Organic Chemistry: Reactions, Principles, and Techniques, 2nd Edition, reaction chapters offer information on the basics of the reaction, the synthetic procedure(s), mechanism, and scope of the reaction. Later chapters discuss practical solvents and green chemistry concepts.

  • Consolidates all the key advances/concepts in one book, covering the most important reactions in organic chemistry, including substitutions, additions, eliminations, rearrangements, oxidations, and reductions
  • Features new content on recent advances in CH activation, photoredox and electrochemistry, continuous chemistry, and the application of biocatalysis in synthesis
  • Revamps chapters to include new and additional examples of chemistry that have been demonstrated at a practical scale
  • Highlights the most important reactions, addressing basic principles, advantages/disadvantages of the methodology, mechanism, and techniques for achieving laboratory success

Practical Synthetic Organic Chemistry: Reactions, Principles, and Techniques, 2nd Edition is a valuable desktop reference for professionals working in and students studying organic chemistry or related fields.
