The first comprehensive coverage of all facets of the Claisen rearrangement and its variants. As such, this book helps synthetic chemists to exploit the vast potential of this elegant C-C linking reaction, discusses a wealth of catalytic options, and gives those more theory-minded chemists a detailed insight into the mechanistic aspects of the Claisen rearrangement. An invaluable source of information and a ready reference for all organic and catalytic chemists, as well as those working with/on organometallics, and in industry.

"...The book commends itselfs by its lucid arrangement of the material and the wealth of material that is covered. It gives a broad overview of methodologies of this old reaction and their application in modern synthetic chemistry and is recommended in particular to PhD students, but of course also to all other chemists in academy and industry."
