The Chemistry of Sulphinic Acids, Esters and Derivatives

Saul Patai (Editor)

ISBN: 978-0-470-77227-0 January 2010 744 Pages


The format follows that of the other volumes in The Chemistry of Functional Groups series; commissioned chapters address theoretical, structural, and stereochemical aspects before considering more specialized topics in synthesis, photochemistry, spectroscopy, and biochemistry. Includes full reaction details and extensive references.
