Description

Organic transformations are the heart of synthetic organic chemistry. The Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods series facilitates the search for the most useful functional group transformations in organic chemistry. Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods, Volume 9, provides quick access to proven protocols for the newest, most useful reactions and transformations. It contains both functional group transformations and bond-forming reactions, and focuses on the use of reagents readily available or easily prepared and handled in the laboratory.

This valuable desktop resource contains over 1,200 examples of published reactions for the preparation of monofunctional compounds in a handy reference, as well as over 800 examples of difunctional compounds, and features over 30 more reviews than Volume 8. As in all the previous Compendium volumes, the classification schemes used allow for quick and easy reference and information retrieval. Chemical transformations are classified by the reacting functional group of the starting material and then by the functional group formed. Helpful indices are provided for both monofunctional and difunctional compounds as an efficient means of guidance to specific classes of transformations.

Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods, Volume 9, is an unparalleled source of information on the methods, reactions, and transformations in contemporary organic chemistry for the working chemist and student.
