The general principles of polar rearrangements are brought together in this text, which deals with all the major rearrangements involving electron-deficient atoms or charged intermediates. Reactions involving migration to electron-deficient carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulphur, andsigmatropic rearrangements involving polar species, are thus treated in a coherent and consistent manner. Clear discussions of the reaction mechanisms are followed by examples of synthetic applications, providing a concise yet comprehensive account of the nature and importance of theseprocesses.
Laurence M. Harwood is at University of Oxford, and Fellow and Tutor of Merton College, Oxford.

Editorial Reviews

'The book provides an excellent introduction to the mechanistic and synthetic topic of rearrangements ... the explanations are very clear and concise ... This is another excellent book in the series, which continues to impress me. I would recommend this book as essential reading to allundergraduates.'David Baker, Education in Chemistry, September 1993
