Designed to supplement existing organic textbooks,Hybrid Retrosynthesispresents a relatively simple approach to solving synthesis problems, using a small library of basic reactions along with the computer searching capabilities of Reaxys and SciFinder. This clear, concise guide reviews the essential skills needed for organic synthesis and retrosynthesis, expanding reader knowledge of the foundational principles of these techniques, whilst supporting their use via practical methodologies.

Perfect for both graduate and post-graduate students,Hybrid Retrosynthesisprovides new applied skills and tools to help during their organic synthesis courses and future careers, whilst simultaneously acting as useful resource for those setting tutorial and group problems, and as a helpful go-to guide for organic chemists involved in either industry or academia.

  • Ideal revision and hands on learning guide for organic synthesis
  • Clearly explains the principles and practice of retrosynthesis, which is often not covered in other books
  • Encourages readers to practice their synthetic knowledge supported by real life examples
Michael B. Smith, University of Connecticut, is a world renowned author of leading organic textbooks.
