A hands-on guide to assist in the planning and execution ofsynthetic reactions in the laboratory
Despite the maturity of organic chemistry, it can still be verychallenging to identify optimal methods for synthetictransformations that perform as well in real-world manufacturingprocesses as they do in the laboratory. This detailed andaccessible guide attempts to address this vexing issue and deliverproven methodologies practicing synthetic chemists will findvaluable for identifying reaction conditions that work reliablyover the broadest possible range of substrates.
Practical Synthetic Organic Chemistry:
* Provides a practical guide to strategically planning andexecuting chemical syntheses for the bench chemist in industry
* Discusses information that is not common knowledge beyond theboundaries of process chemistry groups, such as the syntheticroutes of selected contemporary pharmaceutical drugs and practicalsolvents, as well as green chemistry concepts
* Highlights key reactions, including substitutions, additions,eliminations, rearrangements, oxidations, and reductions
* Addresses basic principles, mechanisms, advantages anddisadvantages of the methodology, and techniques for achievinglaboratory success
Incorporating such an extraordinary wealth of information onorganic chemistry and its related fields into one complete volumedistinguishes Practical Synthetic Organic Chemistry as anincomparable desktop reference for professionals--and aninvaluable study aid for students.
