Description

This handy reference tool is an organized annual review of synthetically useful information. It abstracts synthetic reactions from the major chemistry journals of the past year and includes all reactions and methodsthat are new and reasonably general. The reactions are presented in a convenient pictorial format designed for rapid visual retrieval of information.

The Journal of the American Chemical Society has aptly described this publication as an"aid to the harassed organic chemist who cannot keep up with the never-diminishing stream of new primary literature"and hails it"an outstandingly good buy."
