Reviews

  • Each author has done a commendable job of bringing the reader into a sense of real interaction with the particular research effort....This book should be read in its entirety by serious students of organic synthesis, which is to say, serious students of organic chemistry.
    --JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY


    The third volume of Strategies and Tactics in Organic Synthesis, edited by Thomas Lindberg, contains detailed accounts of thirteen unusually interesting recent developments in the field of synthesis. Like its predecessors, the book conveys much more of the history, trials, tribulations, surprise events (both negative and positive), and excitement of synthesis that can be found in the original publications of the chemical literature. One can even appreciate the personalities and human events that have shaped the realities of each story. But, above all, each of these chapters tells a tale of what is required for success when challenging problems are attacked at the frontiers ofsynthetic science.
    --from the Foreword by E.J. COREY
