* Many chemists collect named and unnamed reactions and their mechanisms
• Will make this time-consuming effort redundant
• Gives the earliest and latest references to these name reactions
• Gives representative examples in synthesis
• The 4th edition contains more reactions as well as more real case applications in synthesis The third edition of this book contains major improvements over the previous edition. In addition to updated references, each reaction is now supplemented with two to three representative examples in synthesis to showcase its synthetic utility. Biographical sketches for the chemists who discovered or developed those name reactions have been included. Furthemore, the subject index is significantly expanded. This book differs from others on name reactions in organic chemistry by focusing 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. Thus, 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 chemists interested in name reactions.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Reviews of the Fourth Edition:

''This is the 4th edition of a classic collection of organic reactions which have been named after the original chemist with which they are associated. It now covers over 300 classical and contemporary name reactions. Each entry includes the name of the reaction, a short description, the step-by-step mechanism, two to three representative examples and a list of references, updated in many cases up to 2009. Biographical sketches for the chemists who discovered or developed those name reactions have been included.

A useful resource for senior undergraduate and graduate students for learning and exams, but also a good reference book for all organic chemists.'' Gordon Fisher, Chemistry World, December, 2009.

Aus den Rezensionen zur 3. Auflage:

"… massgeblich erweitert! … interessant zu lesen … Gegenüber der zweiten Auflage wird der Platz effektiver genutzt … ‘Name Reactions‘ ist ein äusserst nützliches Buch, um einen ersten Einstieg zu einer Vielzahl an wichtigen … aktuellen Namensreaktionen zu erhalten. Die mechanistischen Erläuterungen in Form von ausgezeichneten Schemen sind darüber hinaus eine Grundlage für den fortgeschrittenen Studenten, diese Mechanismen zu üben. Gegenüber der zweiten Auflage wurden … Fehler korrigiert, so dass das Buch … unter dem Gesichtspunkt der gelungenen Erweiterungen - zum Kauf empfohlen werden kann!"
