Annual Reports in Organic Synthesis-1985 is a collection of 45 abstracted primary chemistry journals. The information in this report is presented in an organized manner, with an emphasis on rapid visual retrieval.

Included in this monograph are topics such as carbon-carbon bond forming reactions, oxidations, reductions of different compounds, and the synthesis of certain heterocycles. Also included are protecting groups, useful synthetic preparations and functional group preparations, and other reviews such as techniques, asymmetric synthesis, and reactive intermediates.

The text is recommended for researchers in the field of chemistry, especially those who need a reference in locating specific information from journals.
