Other volumes in the series
Reagents for Organic Synthesis, Volume 1
"...well on the way to becoming the reference of choice for everyone concerned with techniques of synthesis in organic chemistry."
"Due to the book’s unprecedented coverage of reagents and their uses, the suppliers section, the well-organized indexes, and the ease of locating information either in the reagents section or in one of the indexes, I would consider this book a valuable addition to the library of every college of pharmacy. I would also recommend that graduate students acquire this valuable reference book for their own personal library."
—Richard H. Hammer, University of Florida 1967 1,457 pp.
Reagents for Organic Synthesis, Volume 2
"The Fiesers' second volume updates, revises, and adds immensely to the content and worth of their first compilation of organic reagents. The need for a sequence of handbooks such as the Fiesers have provided has long been recognized, and the authors' almost traditional association with, keen awareness of, and interest in the special techniques of organic chemistry make the reading and study of these works especially worthwhile."
—Journal of the American Chemical Society, 1969 538 pp.
Reagents for Organic Synthesis, Volume 3
"This volume, as well as the previous ones, is extremely valuable to a synthetic organic chemist. All three volumes should be in his library."
—American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education, 1972 401 pp.
Reagents for Organic Synthesis, Volume 4
"Synthetic chemists have found the first three volumes of the Fiesers' Reagents for Organic Synthesis very useful and will welcome the new fourth volume of this series.... As before, the authors have carefully culled the recent (1970–1972) literature for applications of organic, inorganic, and organometallic reagents, old and new, and present them alphabetically according to reagent.... Not only are their applications in synthesis discussed, but useful hints, with references, concerning their preparation or commercial suppliers are given. The synthetic chemist will find this volume a veritable gold mine of useful information."
—Journal of Organometallic Chemistry, 1974 660 pp.
Reagents for Organic Synthesis, Volume 5
"New reagents for organic synthesis play an extremely important role in the armentarium of the practical organic chemist. It is, therefore, not surprising that this excellent series by Mary and Louis Fieser is a bestseller and a "must" for the home library.... The Fiesers have done it again. An excellent volume that can be heartily recommended."
