The efficacy of isocyanide reactions in the synthesis of natural or naturallike products has resulted in a renaissance of isocyanide chemistry. Now isocyanides are widely used in different branches of organic, inorganic, coordination, combinatorial and medicinal chemistry.

This invaluable reference is the only book to cover the topic in such depth, presenting all aspects of synthetic isonitrile chemistry. The highly
experienced and internationally renowned editor has brought together an equally distinguished team of authors who cover multicomponent
reactions, isonitriles in total synthesis, isonitriles in polymer chemistry and much more.
