The fourth edition is revolutionary in comparison to the previous three editions. The format change has doubled the space to accommodate at least two to three real case applications in synthesis for each name reaction. The references are updated to 2009. Several new name reactions and reagents are included to reflect the state-of-the-art of organic chemistry.
Unlike other books on name reactions in organic chemistry, Name Reactions, A Collection of Detailed Reaction Mechanisms and Synthetic Applications focuses on their mechanisms. It covers over 300 classical as well as contemporary name reactions. Each reaction is delineated by its detailed step-by-step, electron-pushing mechanism, supplemented with the original and the latest references, especially review articles. Now with addition of many synthetic applications, it is not only an indispensable resource for senior undergraduate and graduate students for learning and exams, but also a good reference book for all organic chemists interested in name reactions.
