"...this volume is well produced and contains a wealth of information that makes it a useful reference work for the practising organic chemist." --CANADIAN CHEMICAL NEWS

"...a useful work that will probably pay for itself in saved time. The experimental details described for representative preparations are particularly useful." --JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY

"This book is a useful addition to the reference literature of synthetic organic chemistry. Its particular valuelies in its systematic approach to some rather unusual classes of compounds, which tend to be treated rather briefly elsewhere." --ELECTRON MICROSCOPY REVIEW
