Featuring 1,200 more entries than its predecessor, Volume 8 covers functional group transformations and carbon-carbon bond forming reactions appearing in the literature from 1990 through 1992. It presents approximately 1,400 examples of published reactions for the preparation of monofunctional compounds and approximately 1,640 examples of reactions that prepare difunctional compounds with various functional groups. It also features 60 more reviews than Volume 7.
As in all the previous Compendium volumes, the classification schemes used allow for quick and easy reference and information retrieval. Chemical transformations are classified first by the reacting functional group of the starting material and then by the functional group formed. The transformation, major reagents that effect the transformation, yield percentage, and stereochemistry are all clearly shown. The Compendium also includes indices for both monofunctional and difunctional compounds as an efficient means of guiding you to specific classes of transformations.
Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods, Volume 8 provides professional chemists and students unparalleled access to the wealth of methods, reactions, and transformations in contemporary organic chemistry.
