Organic Chemistry, Volume 7: Ylid Chemistry focuses on the physical and chemical properties of ylids. This book discusses the Wittig synthesis of olefins, which involves the reaction between carbonyl compounds and phosphonium ylids.
Organized into two parts encompassing nine chapters, this book starts with an overview of the definition of ylids as a substance in which a carbanion is attached directly to a heteroatom transporting a high degree of positive charge. This text then examines the unique stabilization that afforded the carbanions by the presence of the adjacent 'onium atom group, which is the special characteristic of ylids. Other chapters consider the general structure of phosphonium ylids, which virtually has no limitation on the nature of the X groups on phosphorus. This book discusses as well the Wittig reaction involving a condensation-elimination between a phosphonium ylid and ketone. The final chapter deals with the various aspects of the chemistry of sulfur ylids. This book is a valuable resource for chemists.
