Description

In the case of students, this laboratory preparations manual can be used to find additional experiments to illustrate concepts in synthesis and to augment existing laboratory texts. A name reaction index is also included to direct the reader to the location where specific reactions appear in this manual. The industrial chemist is frequently required to prepare a variety of compounds, and this manual can serve as a convenient guide to choose a synthetic route.

Key Features

@introbul:Key Features @bul:* Offers detailed directions for the synthesis of various functional groups * Includes up-to-date references to the journal literature and patents (foreign and domestic) * Reviews the chemistry for each functional group with suggestions where additional research is needed * Name reactions are indexed along with the preparations cited

Readership

Students and professors involved in organic synthesis in either academic or industrial laboratories, lookin for reliable organic or polymer preparations.
