@qu:"Each author has done a commendable job of bringing the reader into a sense of real interaction with the particular research effort....This book should be read in its entirety by serious students of organic synthesis, which is to say, serious students of organic chemistry." @source:--JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY @qu:"...This second volume is as good, or better, than the first. I can strongly recommend it to all who are interested in synthetic chemistry..." @source:--Derek H.R. Barton, Nobel Laureate for Chemistry
