Detailed physical and chemical data is provided so the reader will understand the exact use for a reagent and work with it properly. Adopting the basic format and size of the original Encyclopedia, each volume contains an introduction, an alphabetical arrangement of reagents as well as author and subject indexes.
Z703435 Metal Catalyzed Cross-Coupling Reactions, 2nd Completely revised edition A. de Meijere and F. Diedrich, ed., John Wiley & Sons, 2004, 938 pp., hard cover In this second edition, the editors bring together in two comprehensive volumes everything of importance related to C-C and C-N cross-coupling reactions. The range of applications covered extends from the synthesis of complex natural materials via supramolecular chemistry right up to materials science. Internationally renowned experts pass on to the reader the current level of knowledge, while critical analyses of the latest developments and applications allow users to quickly decide for themselves on which strategies are available for solving their synthesis problems. In particular the experimental guidelines for key reactions developed by the authors for the widest possible range of applications testify to the practical advantages this handbook offers every organic chemist.
Z703125 Name Reactions in Heterocyclic Chemistry this book provides a one-stop repository for this important field of organic chemistry The chemistry of heterocyclic compounds and methods for their synthesis form the bedrock of modern medicinal chemical and pharmaceutical research. This book provides a one-stop repository for this important field of organic chemistry.

The primary topics include three- and four-membered heterocycles, five-membered heterocycles including indoles, furans, thiophenes, and oxazoles, six-membered heterocycles including quinolines, isoquinolines, and pyrimidines, and other heterocycles.

Each name reaction is summarized in seven sections: Description; Historical perspective; Mechanism; Variations and improvements; Synthetic utility; Experimental; and References.
  Z569801 Organic Chemistry, 10th Edition emphasizes the relationship between structure and reactivity A central theme of the authors’ approach to organic chemistry is to emphasize the relationship between structure and reactivity. To accomplish this, the text is organized in a way that combines the most useful features of a functional group approach with one largely based on reaction mechanisms.

The authors’ philosophy is to emphasize mechanisms and their common aspects as often as possible, and at the same time to use the unifying features of functional groups as the basis for most chapters. The structural aspects of the authors’ approach show students what organic chemistry is. Mechanistic aspects of their approach show students how it works. And wherever an opportunity arises, the authors’ show students what it does in living systems and the physical world around us.

In the 10th edition, virtually every aspect of the teaching and learning solution has been revisited and redesigned to assist students in comprehending the fundamentals of organic chemistry. The authors’ thoroughly explain and illustrate each new idea when it is first introduced and then reinforce the new idea or concept by having students work related problems.
  Z152145 Organic Reactions Volume 18 Presents critical discussions of widely used organic reactions from a preparative view point.
The volumes of Organic Reactions are collections of chapters each devoted to a single reaction, or a definite phase of a reaction, of wide applicability. The material is treated from a preparative viewpoint, with emphasis on limitations, interfering influences, effects of structure, and the selection of experimental techniques. Numerous detailed procedures illustrate the significant modifications of each method. Includes tables that contain all possible examples of the reaction under consideration.
  Z234311 Organic Reactions Volume 42 Birch Reduction Presents critical discussions of widely used organic reactions from a preparative view point.
  Z411655 Organic Syntheses, 2nd ed. Collective Volume 9 Reflecting the increased pace of research and the many recent advances in organic chemistry, this series serves as a single-source compendium of the most up-to-date and significant procedures currently in use.
  Z513806 Oxford Chemistry Primers No. 6: Oxidation & Reduction in Organic Synthesis The manipulation of functional groups by oxidative or reductive processes is central to organic chemistry. Despite the importance of these reactions, no existing text has attempted to summarize them simply for students. Together with a later volume in the series,
this book provides a clear and comprehensive summary of oxidative and reductive processes, emphasizing general principles and common factors, and showing the applications of these compounds in organic synthesis.
Z730203 Palladium in Heterocyclic Chemistry: A Guide for the Synthetic Chemist, 2nd ed. the method of choice for the synthesis of a wide range of biaryls and heterobiaryls Heterocycles are of paramount importance in the pharmaceutical industry and palladium chemistry is one of the most novel and efficient ways of making heterocycles. Today, palladium-catalyzed coupling is the method of choice for the synthesis of a wide range of biaryls and heterobiaryls. The number of applications of palladium chemistry to the syntheses of heterocycles has grown exponentially.

These developments highlight the need for a monograph dedicated solely to the palladium chemistry in heterocycles and this book provides a comprehensive explanation of the subject. The principal aim of the book is to highlight important palladium-mediated reactions of heterocycles with emphasis on the unique characteristics of individual heterocycles. This book comprises a compilation of important preparations of heteroaryl halides, boranes and stannanes for each heterocycle.
Z412422 Protective Groups in Organic Synthesis, 3rd ed.

The third edition retains the format and coverage of the second edition, with the addition of all literature updates for new groups since 1991.
  Z421804 Transition Metals in the Synthesis of Complex Organic Molecules, 2nd ed. Written for organic chemists, this all-new second edition offers an easy entry into the field of organotransition metal chemistry without requiring a background in inorganic chemistry. The book first covers the basics of transition metal chemistry and gives a practical introduction to the mechanisms by which organometallic reactions occur. The organic
chemistry of transition metals is then presented by class of metal complex, with many examples of applications in the synthesis of natural products, pharmaceuticals, polymers, and materials. Ideal for advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as all practicing synthetic organic chemists.
