R.B. Woodward, Professor of Science at Harvard University, who died in July 1979, was generally considered to be the greatest organic chemist of modern times. He was one of the founders of Tetrahedron and Tetrahedron Letters and this volume, containing papers from over 50 of the world's leading organic chemists, is dedicated to his memory. The contents cover all areas of modern organic chemistry and therefore present a synopsis of current research in this area of science.
