9780123694836: Strategic Applications of Named Reactions in Organic Synthesis: Background and Detailed Mechanisms

Kurti and Czako's "Strategic Applications of Named Reactions in Organic Synthesis: Premium Hardcover Edition with CD-ROM" is an indispensable tool for both specialists and non-specialists in the field of organic chemistry. This innovative reference work includes 250 organic reactions and their strategic use in the synthesis of complex natural and unnatural products. Reactions are thoroughly discussed in a convenient two-page layout, using color for the first time in an advanced-level organic chemistry book. Each reaction includes a list of main features, a general scheme of the transformation, and a detailed arrow-pushing mechanism based on the latest experimental evidence. It then provides numerous examples demonstrating the synthetic utility of each reaction followed by a list of references. This premium hardback edition also includes a CD-ROM that integrates a PDF master page linked via color links to the text pages of the book itself. A user will be able to go from lecture format to the bookpage and back with the click of a mouse. Together both the CD-ROM and hardback text offers the most comprehensive coverage, superb organization, quality of presentation, and wealth of references for organic chemists everywhere. Due to its comprehensive coverage, superb organization, quality of presentation, and wealth of references, this long-awaited book belongs on the shelf of every organic chemist. This is the first reference work on named reactions to present colored schemes for easier understanding. 250 frequently used named reactions are presented in a convenient two-page layout with numerous examples. An opening list of abbreviations includes both structures and chemical names. It contains more than 10,000 references grouped by seminal paper, reviews, modifications, and theoretical works. The appendices list reactions in order of discovery, group by contemporary usage, and provide additional study tools. The extensive index quickly locates information using words found in text and drawings.

Review:

"This book is outstanding in every way, being polished in presentation, sufficiently detailed in explaining the reactions, and possessing almost encyclopedic indexing and referencing." -JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL EDUCATION "It is an impressive modern treatise of many important chemical reactions; it was created with great care, and I congratulate the authors on the outstanding contribution that they are making to the literature of organic chemistry...There are several books on 'named reactions', but this one is already my favorite..." -Erik Sorensen, Princeton University "The book would be invaluable to many chemists, students, professors and industrial chemists. Not only will it serve as a text for name reactions, but it is also a review of important mechanisms and an invaluable reference book...It will definitely have a place in the collection of books that are used regularly by all chemists." -Madeleine Joullie, University of Pennsylvania "The vast wealth of information so effectively compiled in this colorful text will not only prove to be extraordinarily useful to students and practitioners of the art of chemical synthesis, but will also help facilitate the shaping of its future as it moves forward into ever higher levels of complexity, diversity and efficiency." - K.C. Nicolaou, from the Introduction
