"Every graduate student or chemistry ... will find many useful answers [in] Maskill's book." (Synthesis)
“Information is presented well with a logical chapter sequence. [It] has notable strengths…discussions that include excellent examples and case studies...illustrates the synergism between different techniques.” (Inform Magazine)
- Explains in detail how to investigate the course of an organic chemical reaction, rather than explaining what the various mechanisms are.
- A highly practical approach, giving the reader access to the processes and techniques required to perform these investigations
- Written by both industrial and academic authors, ensuring the coverage is detailed and can easily be applied in the chemical laboratory.
