—From the Foreword by E.J. Corey, Nobel laureate

An invaluable guide to name reactions on carbocyclic ring formations

Ring-forming reactions have found widespread applicability advantageous to the interests of science. Currently, they are used in all areas of organic synthesis, including medicinal and pharmaceutical, agricultural, fine chemicals, and, most recently, polymer science.

This all-inclusive reference focuses on name reactions specific to ring formations, and details the carbocyclic characteristics that make these rings an effective tool in the synthetic arsenal of organic chemistry with:

  • A description of a ring-forming reaction included in each section highlighting the following: historical perspective, a mechanism for the reaction, variations and improvements on the reaction, synthetic utilities of the reaction, experimental details, and current references
  • Coverage of fundamental topics, including various carbocycles (three, five, six, and large-ring carbocycles) and the transformation of carbocycles
  • Examples of common name reactions, such as Simmons-Smith, Pauson-Khand, Danheiser annulation, Diels-Alder, Robinson annulation, Stork enamine reaction, and ring-closing metathesis

An excellent resource for both students and professionals involved with organic chemistry and polymer synthesis, Name Reactions for Carbocyclic Ring Formations delivers essential information on the latest developments from leading experts in the field—and serves as a springboard to further advance scientific discovery.
