Best Synthetic Methods

There is a vast and often bewildering array of synthetic methods and reagents available to organic chemists today. Many chemists have their own favoured methods..., yet new and unfamiliar methods may well allow a particular synthetic step to be performed more readily and in higher yield. Best Synthetic Methods allows the practising synthetic chemist to choose between all the alternatives and assess their real advantages and limitations. Each volume of the series deals with a particular topic from a practical point of view, giving detailed examples and precise experimental directions and hints. With the emphasis on laboratory use, these volumes represent a comprehensive and practical guide to modern synthetic organic chemistry. View full descriptionHide full description
