Kurti and Czako have produced an indispensable tool for specialists and non-specialists in organic chemistry. This innovative reference work includes 250 organic reactions and their strategic use in the synthesis of complex natural and unnatural products. Reactions are thoroughly discussed in a convenient, two-page layout--using full color. Its comprehensive coverage, superb organization, quality of presentation, and wealth of references, make this a necessity for every organic chemist.

* The first reference work on named reactions to present colored schemes for easier understanding
* 250 frequently used named reactions are presented in a convenient two-page layout with numerous examples
* An opening list of abbreviations includes both structures and chemical names
* Contains more than 10,000 references grouped by seminal papers, reviews, modifications, and theoretical works
* Appendices list reactions in order of discovery, group by contemporary usage, and provide additional study tools
* Extensive index quickly locates information using words found in text and drawings

Editorial Reviews

" other book covers the subject of named reactions in such an up-to-date and comprehensive way, ranging from mechanisms to applications...I recommend this book most a work of reference and source of inspiration."-Siegfried R. Waldvogel, University of Bonn, Germany, in ANGEWANDTE CHEMIE, WOL. 44, 2005 "This book is outstanding in every way, being polished in presentation, sufficiently detailed in explaining the reactions, and possessing almost encyclopedic indexing and referencing." -JOURNAL OF CHEMICAL EDUCATION "This book will definitely have a place in the collection of books that are used regularly by all chemists." -Madeleine Joullie, University of Pennsylvania "There are several books on 'named reactions', but this one is already my favorite..."-Erik Sorensen, Princeton University "This text excels by a clear coverage of mechanisms and superb contemporary examples including an extensive list of references."-Peter Wipf, University of Pittsburgh "This extraordinary book was written especially for students by graduate students, but it is far more professional. Named reactions and processes are very important to the field of synthetic organic chemistry, and this book contains 250 of them. This book greatly advances the description of both the art and science of chemical synthesis. Suitable for anyone concerned with organic synthesis.Summing up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students. R.E. Buntrock, formerly, University of mMaine, CHOICE, Sep. 2006, Vol. 44 No. 01
