Cycloaddition Reactions in Organic Synthesis, 8By
- W. Carruthers, University of Exeter, Exeter, UK
For advanced undergraduate and graduate chemistry students, and organic research chemists involved in synthesis in academic and industrial research.
Tetrahedron Organic Chemistry
Published: October 1990
This is an excellent explanatory book that looks at a structure building relationship of general use in organic chemistry. The book stylishly written and edited and will undoubtedly be of value to all those with an interest in this area of organic chemistry.

Carruther's book succeeds well in its aims. It contains a wealth of elegant and well-chosen examples, which are very well-suited for illustrating lectures to advanced students. At the same time it provides the interested synthetic chemist, whether in a university of industry, with an excellent overview of the current state of research (up to 1988). Thus the monograph fits well into the scheme of the other volumes in this "Organic Chemistry" series. Since no other comparable work exists at present, and this volume is also very attractively priced, its purchase can be recommended unreservedly.

...it provides an excellent introduction to cycloaddition reactions as well as the useful literature leads and it therefore should be readily available to all Postgraduate students working in synthetic organic chemistry.
