Organic Reactions, Volume 89

Scott E. Denmark (Editor-in-Chief)

ISBN: 978-1-119-26652-5 February 2016 1360 Pages


The latest volume in this series for organic chemists in industry presents critical discussions of widely used organic reactions or particular phases of a reaction. The material is treated from a preparative viewpoint, with emphasis on limitations, interfering influences, effects of structure and the selection of experimental techniques. The work includes tables that contain all possible examples of the reaction under consideration. Detailed procedures illustrate the significant modifications of each method.
