Strategic Applications of Named Reactions in Organic Synthesis
Kurti and Czako have produced an indispensable tool for specialists and non-specialists in 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 full color. Its comprehensive coverage, superb organization, quality of presentation, and wealth of references, make this a necessity for every organic chemist. It is the first reference work on named reactions to present colored schemes for easier understanding. There are 250 frequently used named reactions that 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 papers, reviews, modifications, and theoretical works. The appendices list reactions in order of discovery, group by contemporary usage, and provide additional study tools. Extensive index quickly locates information using words found in text and drawings.
