Neutral reactive intermediates - radicals, carbenes, nitrenes, and arynes - have an interesting place within the history of organic chemistry. Once regarded as curiosities, then intensively studied from the mechanistic point of view by physical organic chemists, they now play a key role insynthetic chemistry. This concise text concentrates on the last aspect of reactive intermediate chemistry; the important reactions of these electron-deficient species are laid out clearly and simply, with carefully chosen examples illustrating their use in organic synthesis. Each chapter includes afew problems as well as suggestions for further reading and provides undergraduates with an invaluable summary of this important topic in organic chemistry.

'With student grants diminishing in purchasing power, it is pleasing to come across an advanced undergraduate textbook on this subject at under L5.00. Admittedly it is a short book, but the material is attractively presented and profusely illustrated with chemical structures.'Times Higher
