Newer Methods of Preparative Organic Chemistry, Volume III focuses on the improved methods in preparative organic chemistry. This book presents a variety of topics, including the synthesis of acetylenes, methods for the preparation of pyrylium salts, and the use of phosphoric acid chlorides in the preparation of esters of phosphoric acids.
Organized into 11 chapters, this volume starts with an overview of the reaction between methylene and sulfur involving dehydrogenation or oxidation. This text then examines the chemistry of pyridine, which exhibits different reaction characteristics than benzene. Other chapters consider the cyclic derivatives of carboxylic acids, such as lactams, lactones, or thiolactones, which can be converted by partial reduction into heterocycles of the same ring size. The final chapter outlines the fundamental reactions of diazoketones and discusses the preparative significance of the diazoketones.
This book is a valuable resource for synthetic organic chemists involved in research institutions and industrial laboratories.
