By the author of Color Chemistry!

Diazo compounds play an important role as reaction intermediates and reagents in organic synthesis. This book is a critical, well referenced and eminently readable introduction to the chemistry of aromatic and heteroaromatic diazo compounds. It provides well researched information that could otherwise be obtained only by costly and time-consuming searches of multi-volume treatises and the original literature.
Topics covered in depth include:
* preparation and structure of diazo compounds
* kinetics and mechanism of diazotizations
* reactions of diazo compounds
* applications in organic synthesis

Many tables and reaction schemes as well as copious literature citations make this book a highly valuable reference work for synthetic organic chemists, industrial chemists and color chemists.

Also forthcoming: Volume 2 of Diazo Chemistry covering aliphatic, inorganic and organometallic compounds.
