Consists of 30 checked and edited experimental procedures that illustrate new synthetic techniques or describe the preparation of particularly useful chemicals. Features procedures exemplifying important methods for preparing enantiomerically pure substances by asymmetric catalysis; details a reliable zirconium-based process for the coupling of alkynes and enones; concludes with the preparation of four useful starting materials. A section on waste disposal information is included.
