As phenols represent an important functional group category, The Chemistry of Phenols is an essential addition to any chemistry library.

Written by experts, all aspects concerning these compounds are covered making this an essential reference book, bringing together invaluable information into one source for organic, organometallic chemists as well as chemists from a variety of other organic sub-disciplines.

Single Source information – essential for organic, organometallic and chemists from organic sub-disciplines

Covers phenols as anti-oxidants, synthetic intermediates, polymers and hydrogen bonds

Discusses electrophilic and photochemical reactions

The Patai Series publishes comprehensive reviews on all aspects of specific functional groups. Each volume contains outstanding surveys on theoretical and computational aspects, NMR, MS, other spectroscopic methods and analytical chemistry, structural aspects, thermochemistry, photochemistry, synthetic approaches and strategies, synthetic uses and applications in chemical and pharmaceutical industries, biological, biochemical and environmental aspects.

To date, over 100 volumes have been published in the series.
