More than a one-volume listing of synthetic methods, Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods offers chemists a highly focused and selective look at several thousand functional group transformations. Used by more professionals than any comparable reference on the market, this valuable desktop resource provides quick access to the recipes of the newest, most useful reactions and transformations. It also affords professionals an unparalleled opportunity to browse the vast body of recent literature for new reactions and transformations that may be of interest.

Featuring 1,200 more entries than its predecessor, Volume 8 covers functional group transformations and carbon-carbon bond forming reactions appearing in the literature from 1990 through 1992. It presents approximately 1,400 examples of published reactions for the preparation of monofunctional compounds and approximately 1,640 examples of reactions that prepare difunctional compounds with various functional groups. It also features 60 more reviews than Volume 7.

As in all the previous Compendium volumes, the classification schemes used allow for quick and easy reference and information retrieval. Chemical transformations are classified first by the reacting functional group of the starting material and then by the functional group formed. The transformation, major reagents that effect the transformation, yield percentage, and stereochemistry are all clearly shown. The Compendium also includes indices for both monofunctional and difunctional compounds as an efficient means of guiding you to specific classes of transformations.

Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods, Volume 8 provides professional chemists and students unparalleled access to the wealth of methods, reactions, and transformations in contemporary organic chemistry.

About the author

MICHAEL B. SMITH is Professor of Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Connecticut, at Storrs. His research interests focus on developing asymmetric reactions based on manipulating chiral, nonracemic lactams. This work is applied to the development of new synthetic methods and the synthesis of polycyclic alkaloids with antitumor or antiviral activity. He was responsible for developing a new reagent for determining the enantiomeric composition of alcohols and amines bearing a chiral center. Dr. Smith received his doctorate in organic chemistry from Purdue and a bachelor's degree in chemistry from Virginia Tech.

The new, revised and updated 7th edition of March’s Advanced Organic Chemistry clearly explains the theories and examples of organic chemistry, providing the most comprehensive resource about organic chemistry available.

Readers are guided on planning and execution of multi-step synthetic reactions, with detailed descriptions of all the reactions. The first five chapters deal with the structure of organic compounds and discuss important organic chemistry bonds, fundamental principles of conformation, and stereochemistry of organic molecules, and reactive intermediates in organic chemistry. Chapters 6 to 9 are concerned with general principles of mechanism in organic chemistry, including acids and bases, photochemistry, sonochemistry and microwave irradiation, and finally the relationship between structure and reactivity. The last 10 chapters cover the nature and the scope of organic reactions and their mechanisms.

The 7th edition proves again it is a must-have desktop reference and textbook for every student and professional working in organic chemistry or related fields.

Key features of the 7th edition:

Every chapter has been updated with the most recent reaction information with references to both the primary and review literature New to the 7th edition: 5,500 references since the last edition, updates / rewrites of the retained sections, and an updated index in Appendix B Contains more than 1650 reactions and 20,000 valuable references to the primary literature Includes appendices on the literature of organic chemistry and the classification of reactions according to the compounds synthesized Guides the reader on planning and execution of multi-step synthetic reactions, with detailed descriptions of all the reactions. 

Reviews of the previous edition:

"...a favorite general organic chemistry text and an easy-to-use one-volume reference. We are confident that this book will remain a dominant reference and that it will reside on many chemists' personal bookshelves." –Journal of Medicinal Chemistry

"Who can hope to be seriously accepted as a member of the organic chemistry community without being in possession of at least one edition of 'March'?" –Chemistry and Industry

Organic transformations are the heart of synthetic organic chemistry. The Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods series facilitates the search for the most useful functional group transformations in organic chemistry. Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods, Volume 9, provides quick access to proven protocols for the newest, most useful reactions and transformations. It contains both functional group transformations and bond-forming reactions, and focuses on the use of reagents readily available or easily prepared and handled in the laboratory.

This valuable desktop resource contains over 1,200 examples of published reactions for the preparation of monofunctional compounds in a handy reference, as well as over 800 examples of difunctional compounds, and features over 30 more reviews than Volume 8. As in all the previous Compendium volumes, the classification schemes used allow for quick and easy reference and information retrieval. Chemical transformations are classified by the reacting functional group of the starting material and then by the functional group formed. Helpful indices are provided for both monofunctional and difunctional compounds as an efficient means of guidance to specific classes of transformations.

Compendium of Organic Synthetic Methods, Volume 9, is an unparalleled source of information on the methods, reactions, and transformations in contemporary organic chemistry for the working chemist and student.
