Fiesers' Reagents for Organic Synthesis
From reviews of previous volumes:
"Essential for chemistry collections at the university and research levels."
-New York Public Library
"Highly recommended...lots of succinct, practical information on recent developments...in a format that is easy to use. The reagents are taken up in alphabetical order (common usage names, not CAS indexing code names), sometimes several to a page, sometimes several pages to a reagent. One can expect to find how to make the reagent (in loose terms), or where it can be bought, what is is good for, and where to seek complete details. As with previous volumes, one can profit from just browsing, even if one does not feel a need to look up any particular subject. It is thus a secondary function of the book to help one keep abreast of the field, and it would be a rare chemist who would not learn something new and useful from a casual perusal of the pages."
