Organic Syntheses Based on Named Reactions: A Practical Encyclopedic Guide to Over 800 Transformations, Fourth Edition is an indispensable reference companion for chemistry students and researchers. The book provides an overview of name reactions based on reaction types and products formed and presents schemes, procedures and references in a simple, one-page format that offers a brief, representative procedure for each name reaction. The book is illustrated with real synthetic examples from literature, with about 3,400 references to primary literature that direct users to additional information. Extensive indexes (name, reagent, reaction) and a very useful functional group transformation index help the reader fully navigate this extensive collection of important reactions.With its comprehensive coverage, superb organization and quality of presentation, this new edition belongs on the shelf of every organic chemist.

Key Features

  • Covers new examples of known reactions, particularly their asymmetric versions, new reactions involving metal-mediated catalysis and organocatalysis, and multi-component and cascade/domino versions of known reactions
  • Provides a handy reference guide that explains 750 established named processes and methods that are trusted and used by organic chemists to synthesize or transform molecules
  • Presents key data on each transformation, including background, mechanism and experimental details
  • Includes extensive, multiple indexes that allow the reader to search for information and rapidly plan transformations
