Name Reactions in Heterocyclic Chemistry II presents acomprehensive treatise on name reactions in heterocyclic chemistry,one of the most exciting—and important—fields withinorganic chemistry today.
The book not only covers fresh ground, but also providesextensive information on new and/or expanded reactions in:
Three- and four-membered heterocycles
Five-membered heterocycles (pyrroles and pyrrolidines, indoles,furans, thiophenes, and oxazoles)
Six-membered heterocycles, including pyridines, quinolines, andisoquinolines
Featuring contributions from the leading authorities inheterocyclic chemistry. Each section includes a description of thegiven reaction, as well as the relevant historical perspective,mechanism, variations and improvements, synthetic utilities,experimental details, and references to the current primaryliterature.
The reactions covered in Name Reactions in HeterocyclicChemistry have been widely adopted in all areas of organicsynthesis, from the medicinal/pharmaceutical field, to agriculture,to fine chemicals, and the book brings the most cutting-edgeknowledge to practicing synthetic chemists and students, along withthe tools needed to synthesize new and useful molecules.
The easy way to take the confusion out of organic chemistry
Organic chemistry has a long-standing reputation as a difficult course. Organic Chemistry I For Dummies takes a simple approach to the topic, allowing you to grasp concepts at your own pace.
This fun, easy-to-understand guide explains the basic principles of organic chemistry in simple terms, providing insight into the language of organic chemists, the major classes of compounds, and top trouble spots. You'll also get the nuts and bolts of tackling organic chemistry problems, from knowing where to start to spotting sneaky tricks that professors like to incorporate.Refreshed example equationsNew explanations and practical examples that reflect today's teaching methodsFully worked-out organic chemistry problems
Baffled by benzines? Confused by carboxylic acids? Here's the help you need—in plain English!
