This volume describes some of the more general and important methods for the generation of oxygen, nitrogen and sulfur ylides, and the use of these reactive intermediates for the synthesis of complex organic compounds. It includes complete practical details required to perform such reactions,and is suitable for those with no previous experience of ylide chemistry.Few recent texts have focused upon this rapidly expanding area of organic synthesis, and none provide the wealth of practical advice and experimental details that this book makes available to the non-expert.
J Stephen Clark is in the Department of Chemistry, University of Nottingham.

Editorial Reviews

`The individual contributions contain concise and authoritative accounts of the state of the art in each area, with references to relevant reviews as well as the most important papers in the primary literature ... The really distinctive feature of the books in this series, is the inclusion ineach chapter of fully detailed experimental procedures or "protocols", each listing the required equipment and starting materials and giving step-by-step instructions.'Angewandte Chemie
