Overview

This long-awaited, greatly-expanded new edition of a best-selling guide offers an encyclopedic and systematic collection of useful synthetic methodology, including tens of thousands of reactions and synthetic transformations. The first edition has been reviewed in the professional journals as "clearly...the first choice for researchers seeking information on synthetic transformations." And as "useful to anyone who must do organic synthesis, especially those whose focus is not strictly organic chemistry. It provides a...clear road map to the synthetic literature and should be kept within easy reach of the chemist's desk."

Booknews
Larock's first edition (1989) assembled, revised, and greatly expanded a series of course handouts begun in 1973 to cover the key reactions of the major organic functional groups. That work provided a highly condensed, systematic collection of synthetic methods for use by beginning students and experienced organic synthesis workers. This edition covers 39 new journals and numerous additional reviews and books from 1988-95. Larock (chemistry, Iowa State U.) won the Merck Academic Development Awards in Chemistry (1997 &'98), received a Regent's Award for Faculty Excellence at Iowa State University (1998), and was named its University Professor of Chemistry (1999).
