Editorial Reviews

An overview of current reasearch in Grignard chemistry, providing the theoretical and practical information necessary to explore new applications in research studies. The 29 contributors survey reactions and methods of Grignard reagent preparation from organic halides and olefins while summarizing the spectrum of reactions exhibited by Grignard reagents. The "one stop shopping" guide also discusses instrumental methods of analysis, infrared spectroscopy, magnetic resonance, x-ray crystallography, and special interest topics such as the Barbier reaction. Includes illustrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
