@bul:* Offers detailed directions for the synthesis of various functional groups
* Includes up-to-date references to the journal literature and patents (foreign and domestic)
* Reviews the chemistry for each functional group with suggestions where additional research is needed
* Name reactions are indexed along with the preparations cited
In the case of students, this laboratory preparations manual can be used to find additional experiments to illustrate concepts in synthesis and to augment existing laboratory texts. A name reaction index is also included to direct the reader to the location where specific reactions appear in this manual.
The industrial chemist is frequently required to prepare a variety of compounds, and this manual can serve as a convenient guide to choose a synthetic route.
Students and professors involved in organic synthesis in either academic or industrial laboratories, lookin for reliable organic or polymer preparations.
