Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The overall quality, details and value of [this] first volume—a 'do-it-yourself guide' to one of the most important C-C bond-forming methods in organic synthesis, organocopper chemistry—set a good standard for the series and bode well for its use as both a reference and a working tool in organic laboratories...A useful text for novice and veteran organocopper chemists alike."—Journal of the American Chemical Society
A laboratory manual detailing the procedures for the preparation and application of a group of highly specific reagents, and how to overcome the many problems associated with their use. Also includes a historical overview of organocopper chemistry; a description of starting material purification; and guidelines to the reaction, which are usually characterized by a high chemo-, regio-, and stereoselectivity. Begins a series providing practical and accessible laboratory guides for new and experienced researchers unfamiliar with the particular area. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
