Modern Organic Synthesis

Modern Organic Synthesis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Taking a reagent-based approach, Modern Organic Synthesis manages to clearly present the fundamental principles of this challenging subject in a clear manner that avoids overwhelming students. Bullet lists and end of chapter problems help students get to grips with tricky concepts and the book's practical, concise approach will also make it a useful handbook for researchers. Up-to-date references and an accompanying solutions manual, make this an ideal compliment to advanced Organic Chemistry courses.

Book News Annotation:

Writing primarily for upper-level undergraduates and early graduate students in organic synthesis, Zweifel and Nantz (both: chemistry, U. of California, Davis) provide the necessary background to begin research in an academic or industrial environment. They cover synthetic design, stereochemical considerations in planning synthesis, the concept of protecting functional groups, oxidation and reduction as functional group transformations, the chemistry of carbon-carbon pi-bonds and related reactions, formation of carbon-carbon single bonds through enolate anions and organometallic reagents, formation of carbon-carbon pi-bonds, and synthesis of carbocyclic systems. They close with a brief chapter on the art of synthesis.

Synopsis:

Written for the organic synthesis portion of the advanced organic chemistry course (taken by seniors and graduate students), Zweifel and Nantz's concise new text covers the essentials with exceptional coherence and clarity without bogging students down with too much unnecessary material.
