Annual Reports in Organic Synthesis—1984 is a bibliography of papers on organic synthesis from primary chemistry journals. Topics covered range from carbon-carbon bond forming reactions to oxidations, reductions, synthesis of heterocycles, and synthetic preparations. This book consists of seven chapters and begins with a list of papers on carbon-carbon bond forming reactions, including carbon-carbon single, double, and triple bonds. The chapters that follow focus on oxidations and reductions, methods of synthesizing heterocyclic systems, and the use of protecting groups. Synthetically useful transformations that do not fit easily into the first three chapters are considered next, with emphasis on functional group synthesis, ring expansion and contraction, and useful multistep transformations. The final chapter deals with miscellaneous reviews on topics ranging from cycloadditions to asymmetric catalysis, metalation, electrophilic substitutions, and pyrylium-mediated transformations of primary amino groups into other functional groups. This monograph will be of value to organic chemists, both specialist and nonspecialist in synthesis.
