Solvents and Solvent Effects in Organic Chemistry Christian Reichardt From reviews of the first edition: This monograph can be recommended as a standard work to everyone who wants to be fully informed on the current knowledge of solvent effects in organic chemistry. It will be used successfully in research and industry to find the optimal reaction medium in the planning of a synthesis. Journal fúr praktische Chemie This is an extremely useful book which is well referenced (Chapter 5 alone lists 451 references) and it should find a place in the library of every practicing chemist who has occasion to call upon solvents to facilitate his reactions. Within hours of the book's arrival on my desk it had been confiscated by two of my students who have found it extremely useful. Journal of the American Chemical Society

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the authors have managed to combine completeness of coverage of theoretical problems with the reference character of the book... The sections devoted to solvatochromism are valuable in themselves (Prof. Reichardt is a recognized world leader in this field) and prepare the reader for subsequent consideration of the versatile empirical parameters of the polarity of solvents... no other book now offers such exhaustive and deep information on the influence of solvents on chemical processes. This work is sure to be useful for all researchers, graduate students, and undergraduates working with liquid media."

Russian Journal of Physical Chemistry A, 2011, Vol. 85, No. 8

Meet the Author

Christian Reichardt obtained his Ph.D. in 1962 under the tutelage of Prof. K. Dimroth at the university of Marburg, and completed his Habilitation in 1967. Since 1971 he has been Professor of Organic Chemistry at the Philipps University Marburg. In 1988 he was visiting professor at the University of Barcelona, Spain, and 1998 at the University of Bratislava, Slovak Republic, and 2000 at the University of Oita/Japan. He has authored and co-authored more than 170 papers and patents, as well as two books. For his book on Solvent Effects he received in 1989 the literary prize of the "Fonds der Chemischen Industrie" in Frankfurt (Main). In 2000, he received the Marie-Sklodowska-Curie-Medal of the Polish Chemical Society.

Tom Welton studied at the University of Sussex, graduating with a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry in 1985 and completed his DPhil, under the guidance of Prof. Seddon, in 1990. His interest in ionic liquids dates back to this time and has continued throughout his career. In 1993 he was awarded the prestigious Lloyd's of London Tercentenary Foundation fellowship, which he chose to take up at Imperial College. He has remained there, initially as a Lecturer, but now as a Professor in Sustainable Chemistry. He is the 2007 Christopher Ingold Lecturer awarded for excellence in physical organic chemistry. Since August 2007 he is head of the department of Chemistry at Imperial College.
