Selectivity, Strategy & Efficiency in Modern Organic ChemistryEdited by
- S.V. Ley, Imperial College of Science, Technology & Medicine, London, UK
This volume covers all methods of oxidation for use in organic synthesis. Emphasis has been placed on selectivity and functional group compatibility together with practical utility and applications. The volume is broadly divided to cover oxidation of unactivated carbon-hydrogen bonds, oxidation of activated carbon-hydrogen bonds, that is to say those adjacent to activating substituents and adjacent to heteroatoms, and oxidation of carbon-carbon double bonds. The volume also covers oxidation of C-X bonds, carbon-carbon single bonds, heteroatom oxidation and a number of special topics such as electrochemical methods, oxidative rearrangements, solid supported reagents, electron transfer oxidation, and biological methods.
