The book is comprised of a series of exercises in synthetic organic chemistry based around recent published syntheses. The exercises are designed to provide challenges for people with varying levels of experience from final year students to academic staff and industrial group leaders, allowingthem to increase their `vocabulary' of synthetic transformations. This novel approach, which actively involves the reader, would be an ideal source of topics for group discussions.

Editorial Reviews

`Ghiron and Thomas have produced a very good set of synthetic chemistry problems which are ideally suited for group discussions. The problems should challenge and stimulate synthetic organic chemists of varying abilities and I am certain that my research group will have many thought provokingdiscussions based upon the problems provided in this book.'Mike Shipman, University of Exeter, Synthesis, October 1997
